Cheik mate

According to today's Daily Heil, we're on the verge of signing Cheik Tiote of FC Twente for £3.5m. Tiote is the defensive midfielder that we've been desperately craving (more so given Alan Smith's weak showing last Monday) and arrives on the back of a decent World Cup in which he played in all three of the Ivory Coast's matches.

The Heil reports that the player had a medical today after a fee was agreed with the reigning Dutch champions yesterday.
