Middlesbrough, Crystal Palace and West Bromwich Albion are all chasing the Ivorian, ahead of the opening of the summer transfer window.
Newcastle are expecting to lose Tiote in the coming months, and want around £4 million for the 29-year-old.
Tiote is one of the Magpies higher earners, and he will be sold to cut costs as the North East side look to adapt to life in the Championship.
Tiote has played a rotational role for Newcastle over the past season, and he could now leave.
Middlesbrough feel that he would enhance their midfield options, as they look to ensure that they retain their Premier League status after working so hard to earn promotion from the Championship.
Palace and West Brom, meanwhile, are both expected to invest in the summer - as Alan Pardew and Tony Pulis look to improve their respective sides.
If Tiote does leave Newcastle he will do so, having made 141 appearances over a six year stay with the Tynesiders.
