Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew says that he can't wait to welcome back midfielder Cheick Tiote following his three-match suspension.

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew believes that the Magpies have missed the physical threat of midfielder Cheick Tiote.

The North East side, who succumbed to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of West Ham United, have been without Tiote for the last three fixtures due to a match suspension after picking up a red card in Newcastle's 1-1 draw with Sunderland.

"Cheick will be back for Swansea, and he's important to us," the Chronicle quotes Pardew as saying. "We missed him against West Ham and we miss him in these physical games."

Newcastle sit in 10th spot in the Premier League table.
