There is news in the Sunday Sun today that Newcastle are indeed after West Ham striker Demba Ba.
Demba Ba – desperate to come to Newcastle
The local paper is reporting that a move for the West Ham striker is a priority at Newcastle, and the paper has verified that his agent has been saying a deal has indeed already been agreed with Newcastle.
The deal was supposed to have been hammered out on Friday night, but the Sunday Sun is saying things are not quite as far along as some reports would have you believe.
But they are reporting the Senegal striker is said to be “desperate” to join Newcastle, but Newcastle do also have doubts about the 26 year-old’s knee problem.
But given the knee is found to be sound after he undergoes a medical, Newcastle think the player represents excellent value as a free agent.
It seems Newcastle could sign this player next week some time – maybe late in the week – but it seems that all Newcastle fans are not convinced he would be a good signing.
What do you think?
