Tiote suffered a knee injury during the Africa Cup of Nations, and he could miss the rest of the season, the Newcastle Chronicle reports.

Tiote is set to undergo additional scans on his knee, with initial fears that he could be sidelined for up to 10 weeks, which all but rules him out for the remainder of Premier League play. He was unable to play in the AFCON final last Sunday due to the injury, and he may have played his last game for Newcastle, as he has been the subject of numerous transfer rumors through the past few windows.
