Sky Sports is reporting today that Newcastle United have won the race for Demba Ba.
Demba Ba – traveling to Newcastle for a medical
There are a number of clubs who have been after free agent Ba, but as reported last weekend it seems that an agreement was reached with Newcastle last Friday night.
Sky Sports is reporting that it turned into a two horse race, between Everton and Newcastle, with the Magpies winning the chance to sing the free agent.
Ba is now traveling to Newcastle to undergo a medical, and of course that will be important, since he failed his medical in January at Stoke City.
And all being well on the medical side of things, the Senegal striker will sign for Newcastle within the next 24 hours.
We all have to hope the 26 year-old will pass his medical because it will be bad news for the fans, should he fail his medical on Tyneside.
He will become Newcastle’s second signing of the summer, following French International midfielder Yohan Cabaye.
