CHEIK Tiote says he is happy at Newcastle United amid talk of Russian side Lokomotiv Moscow preparing a bid for him.

The Ivory Coast international has been linked with a move elsewhere this summer.

But he insists he’s happy at Newcastle – and wants to play in the Premier League for many years to come.

Tiote is quoted as saying: “I have a contract with Newcastle. Unless they want to do business with another club, I will be a Newcastle player.

“I do enjoy the Premier League and want to play there for many years, but you never know in football.”
