Cheick Tiote's set to see out the season at Newcastle United.

The midfielder has been interesting clubs in China.

And Tiote is focused on next Wednesday's Premier League game against Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium.

The 29-year-old was in La Manga, Spain, with his team-mates last week for a training camp and friendly against Lillestrom, beaten 2-1 by Steve McClaren's side.

Our columnist @GallowgateShots has given his verdict on the trip, which was labelled a "jolly" by some fans.

Finally, Peter Beardsley, Newcastle's football development manager, has been talking about the elevation of a number of the club's young players to the first-team squad.
