RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Tiote was brought on in the 45th minute of Newcastle's 0-4 loss to Southampton on Saturday.

Tiote wasn't able to stop the bleeding as the Newcastle defense looked terrible all match. The Ivorian should help tighten things up defensively, but fantasy owners shouldn't expect much offensive production from Tiote.

Tiote played twice for Côte d'Ivoire during the international break, and is expected to be back in manager Alan Pardew's starting XI for Newcastle's trip to Southampton on Saturday.

Tiote, a defensive enforcer, doesn't score many fantasy points himself, but his presence will improve the Toon defense, creating a slight boost in value for Tim Krul, and the Newcastle defenders.

Newcastle has rejected a bid from Lokomotiv Moscow and placed a £14 million price tag on Tiote, reports the Daily Mail.

Moscow offered £4 million for the midfielder as they look to replace Lassana Diarra. Tiote is reportedly interested in leaving Newcastle for another club, but none have matched the club's valuation yet.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Tiote is not expected to be ready for Newcastle's season opener against Manchester City, the Shields Gazette reports.

Tiote will be sorely missed going into a tough matchup against a potent Manchester City squad. The Ivorian international doesn't rate highly in fantasy formats because of his defensive role in midfield, but his absence makes any Toon defender slightly less attractive.
