Former Premier League player Cheick Tiote has died at the age of 30 after collapsing during a training session in China.

Tiote, who joined Chinese second division side Beijing Enterprises earlier in the year, was reportedly rushed to hospital on Monday.

However, it has been confirmed that the Ivorian had passed away.

Tiote spent seven years at Newcastle United after signing from FC Twente in 2010, playing over 150 games for the club.

A statement from the player's representative said: 'It is with deep sadness that I confirm that my client Cheick Tiote sadly passed away earlier today after collapsing in training with his club Beijing Enterprises.



'We cannot say any more at the moment and we request that his family's privacy be respected at this difficult time.

'We ask for all your prayers.'

Tiote's former Newcastle team-mate, Stephen Harper, said on Twitter: 'Gutted to hear the awful news about my former team-mate Cheick Tiote today.

'Thoughts with his friends and family.'

Demba Ba, who also shared a dressing room with Tiote at St James' Park, added: 'May Allah gives grant you jannah [paradise] brother Tiote.'
