The midfielder's move, which was been announced in China, is expected to be confirmed by Newcastle United later today.

Tiote had travelled to the country late last week to undergo a medical.

And the 30-year-old has now finally ended his long association with Newcastle after two injury-hit years on the fringes at St James's Park.

The Ivory Coast international – who joined United in the summer of 2010 – made 156 appearances for the club.

Tiote's only goal came in Newcastle's famous 4-4 draw against Arsenal.
