Now the club have released a statement including quotes from Cheick Tiote, with the player claiming he is ‘as committed as I have ever been to Newcastle’.

The player does though acknowledge there was some transfer interest but doesn’t elaborate.

Tiote also says he is now fully fit.

“I saw the quotes that appeared yesterday but they are not accurate.”

“Yes, there was some interest in me over the summer and that can be a bit distracting, but nothing came of it.

“I am back to full fitness and only thinking about doing my best for the team.

“We aren’t in a good position in the league right now and I want to get us up to where we should be.

“I am as committed as I have ever been to Newcastle.”
