Reds Chase Newcastle Midfield Star

Liverpool have entered the scramble to sign Newcastle's Cheick Tiote in the January transfer window.

Tiote became an instant hit at St James' Park following his £3.5m move from FC Twente in August 2010.

And the Ivory Coast international - valued at £25million - is wanted by Reds boss Kenny Dalglish to inject some momentum in the Anfield club's season.

Dalglish will face stiff competition however from title-chasers Chelsea, and Manchester United, according to reports in the Sunday Mirror.

The news comes after Tiote went to seek help from a witch doctor in a bid to regain full fitness.

Tiote was given permission by club owner Mike Ashley to fly back to his homeland to seek help to sure his persistent injury.

The 25-year-old has fluid on his right knee which is causing pain and restricting his movement when twisting and turning.

His appearance in the 0-0 draw with Swansea was his first game for the club since they beat Wigan 1-0 in October.
