FC Twente Sell-On Clause May Scupper Cheick Tiote Sale From Newcastle United

8 years ago

After not having the best of seasons, the future of Cheick Tiote has been speculated on.

At one time a first pick for a lot of fans, the midfielder has seen his stock fall amongst fans with him coming in for a fair bit of stick, some of it deserved, in the later matches of the season

I think he has every chance of bouncing back next season but at this moment in time I think a sizeable number of Newcastle fans would be happy for the club to take the money if a big bid came in.

Amongst the many transfer rumours, there have been some surrounding Cheick, with Lokomotiv Moscow supposedly ready to make a massive bid.

Any possible sale though could have one added obstacle, as our man in Holland, Paul Benneworth, has tipped us off.

The news of a possible big money Russian offer has created plenty interest in Twente, with their local press reporting that FC Twente could be in line for a major payout as they have a ‘generous sell-on clause’ if Tiote moves on.

Whatever some fans think of Cheick Tiote now, he was undoubtedly a bargain buy at £3.5m, but if the contract clause is substantial then Twente weren’t quite as naive as initially thought.
