NEWCASTLE United midfielder Cheik Tiote has been pictured wearing an Arsenal shirt.

A photograph is circulating online which appears to show Tiote in a yellow Arsenal jersey.

United manager Alan Pardew yesterday insisted the club was not looking to sell the midfielder in the January transfer window.

However, Pardew admitted early in the season that Tiote had been “unsettled” in the summer.

An unnamed club had bid for the 28-year-old, who is sidelined with an injury.

Newcastle have made no comment on the photograph.

However, the Gazette understands that Tiote does NOT have official Facebook or Twitter accounts.
