Cheick Tiote: Has had his car taken by police

The 26-year-old Ivory Coast international was stopped near Newcastle's training ground on Tuesday afternoon by Northumbria Police officers.

And Tiote's black and white Chevrolet Camaro, thought to be worth in the region of £75,000, was taken away on the back of a recovery lorry.

A Northumbria Police spokesman said: "At about 1.30pm on 12 February, a car was stopped on Benton Park Road, Newcastle, and a 26-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of fraud in relation to driving offences."

Police added that their inquiries are ongoing.

Tiote, who has only just returned from the Africa Cup of Nations, joined Newcastle from Dutch side FC Twente in 2010 for a fee of £3.5m, and the defensive midfielder has made a big impression since arriving at St James' Park.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
