Cheick Tiote has signed a deal to transfer from Newcastle United to Chinese second-tier side Beijing Enterprises Group FC for an undisclosed fee.

The deal was completed on Thursday morning and sees Tiote bring to an end a six-year stay at St James Park.

The Ivorian made 139 league appearances for the Magpies after joining them in August 2010 from FC Twente.

He scored just one goal – a memorable volley against Arsenal in a 4-4 draw in February 2011.

The 30-year-old has been a peripheral figure for Rafael Benitez’s team this season, making just three appearances.
