... Newcastle United’s season-opener against Manchester City.

But the Chronicle suggests he could have played his last Newcastle match.

Alan Pardew doesn’t now expect Tiote to recover from a hamstring problem in time to face the Premier League champions.

Tiote is interesting clubs in Russia and Newcastle could cash in if price is right. 

The Chronicle understands that the Ivory Coast midfielder’s representatives are open to offers in the remainder of the transfer window.

And at 28 if the right deal comes in he could be moved on.

Sources in Russia say that Lokomotiv Moscow and another unnamed Russian Premier League club have an interest in Tiote while clubs in Germany and Spain are also monitoring the situation.

Tiote has three years left on his contract and is rated at around £8million.
