FABRICIO Coloccini and Cheik Tiote are back in training ahead of Newcastle United’s visit to White Hart Lane.

Coloccini has missed the club’s last four games with a groin problem.

But United’s captain is ready to return for Sunday’s televised game against Tottenham Hotspur.

And midfielder Cheik Tiote – who limped out of last weekend’s win over

Chelsea – is also available for selection.

“Colo’s trained the last two or three days, and is OK,” said Pardew today.

“Cheik is good. He’s in great form at the moment, and it’s important that

he is available.”

Meanwhile, defender Steven Taylor (hamstring) is pencilled in to return

against Norwich City on November 23.

Pardew said: “He should be OK after the international break.”
