Football trasnfer news: Chelsea target Newcastle midfielder Cheick Tiote

Chelsea will launch a stunning £20million swoop for Newcastle midfield enforcer Cheick Tiote. Chelsea have shown interest in the Ivorian footballer during the previous two transfer windows. The London side tried to sign Tiote in ­January and again showed interest in July. But now the signs are that it could be third time lucky for the Blues with ­Newcastle’s policy of self-suffiency indicating that every player has his price. Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas has recently faced criticism because of the club’s current standing in the Premier League – 12 points behind league leaders Manchester City in fourth place. This Sunday’s match Chelsea vs Liverpool at Stamford Bridge is Villas-Boas’ 18th competitive game since taking over just under five months ago.
