Newcastle United’s Cheick Tiote is wanted by Major League Soccer club New England Revolution, according to a report.

The midfielder is being lined up as a “marquee” January signing.

New England – who finished mid-table in the MLS’s Eastern Conference – are looking to strengthen their squad.

And the club is considering a move for 29-year-old Tiote, according to The Sun.

Tiote has recently won his place back after recovering from a long-term knee injury.
