Reports Liverpool To Come In For Demba Ba Tomorrow


Tomorrow may not be a very good day for Newcastle supporters.

Demba Ba – Liverpool after this player?

Last year we lost Andy Carroll to Liverpool in a shock £35M deal on the last day of this window, and even Alan Pardew was not expecting that.

Now David Craig of Sky Sports News is reporting there are persistent rumors (that will not go away), that Liverpool are coming in tomorrow to try to get Demba Ba – presumably using that buy-out clause in his contract – said to be around £7M.

Of course this may be just to up the interest for their day-long transfer broadcast tomorrow, when they cover all the transfer moves being made on the very last day of the January transfer window, and they hype it up big time.

But if somehow Liverpool come in and get Demba  Ba – that would be totally and absolutely ridiculous.

Liverpool paid £35M for Andy Carroll, so why is it that they keep eyeing Newcastle players all the time?

There are two things that worry us,  that this news may be true.

One is that Alan Pardew has come out too many times this month and said he is worried we may lose one or more of our top players, so maybe an inquiry has already been made by Liverpool about Demba Ba.

And the second thing is that Kenny Dalglish tried to get the Liverpool game at Wolves tomorrow moved back one day, because it was on the last day of the transfer window, but Wolves manager Mick McCarthy refused.

That would suggest  Liverpool are going to do some big business in the transfer market tomorrow.

We are looking at tomorrow with a little bit of trepidation, but surely this cannot happen – not for a second January in a row – and the local press has reported Ba’s release clause only comes into effect in the summer?

We’ll be very pleased if at 11:00pm tomorrow night we still have all our players at the club, plus one or two new players that have come through the door.

Comments welcome.

    I’m gonna bloody hate Liverpool if they take another top player from us again. piss off, stop nicking our players and look somewhere else because our players are not for sale.

    Go get heskey back he’s on a cheap and contract ends in summer. I will go mental if ba leaves us without even testing our new Senegalese partnership and above all else we are above Liverpool and we’ve only had him since the summer.

    I think we will sign a CB of the calibre of Williams from Boro, or go back in for Ridgewell. But there’s always that nagging doubt in my mind, that Mike will have told AP to sit tight and wait ’til the summer, to perhaps sign that Douglas on a free. Hypothetically we could already have that deal in place, given his contract is expiring.

    NOT GOING TO HAPPEN! This is pure fabrication and a nothing story. In no way is Ba going to leave, for one, SSN already reported earlier that Ba wouldn’t disrespect Newcastle fans like that leaving after 6 months, secondly, we just signed his team mate and with all the other french lads he isn’t looking to rock the boat so soon, thirdly, after seeing Carroll leave for Liverpool he’s more than aware the grass isn’t greener on the otherside and I can throw in a fourth reason, I take Ba is an ambitious type of player and if (big if) he does decide to leave it’s going to be for one of the bigger clubs, and most likely for PSG since they have all the money and that’s his boyhood club.

    Dalglish’s lack of ideas is disgusting. I have everything crossed that
    A. Thr buy out clause isn’t active until the summer in the event of our relegation.
    B. Fundamentally Mr Ba actually enjoys Newcastle and the brand of football we SOMETIMES play.
    C. We signed Cisse as his partner, not his replacement.

    Let’s have Zaha and Mbiwa in and forget about the bloody scousers!

    On the bright side, Paul Dummet is up and running again, he was a bright spot in the pre-season.
    Wonder if he can come into consideration towards the end of the season.

    Don’t ask me how I know because I can’t tell you, but Ba is going nowhere tomorrow, but he will definitely leave in the summer, his agent is already working on it. It doesn’t look as though anyone is coming in, as all foreign targets aren’t available until the summer, and the new slimmed-down fatso won’t go above £2m for Mariappa. Never say never, but prepare to be told fairly early in the morning that there will be no transfer business tomorrow, in or out.
