Tiote seeks talks with Newcastle over Wonga kit deal after Cisse disquiet
by Joe Bernstein
A second Newcastle player has taken legal advice over the club's sponsorship deal with loans company Wonga.
Cheick Tiote is set to meet the club this week to ask them not to use promotional shots of him wearing their new branded kit.
Striker Papiss Cisse has already expressed his disquiet about the Wonga partnership but he and fellow Muslim players Tiote, Massaido Haidara, Hatem Ben Arfa and Moussa Sissoko did pose in the new strip emblazoned with the wonga.com logo in a photo session for the first-team squad in April to promote the company.
