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