Demba Ba has 16 goals in the Premier League this season, and he has said often that he’s happy on Tyneside.
Demba Ba – very popular player on Tyneside
The Senegal striker has been linked with a number of clubs, and most recently with Chelsea, where it seems almost half our team are being tracked by the London side.
But some of Alan Pardew’s statements yesterday suggests the Newcastle manager is still a little bit worried that Demba Ba may move on in the summer, so he had this message to Newcastle fans:
“I think Demba’s made it quite clear that he loves it here,” “I think that’s a big part of Demba. I think if you know Demba you know that he is an emotional person.”
“It isn’t all about money for him.” “I think the fans can play a big part in keeping him. If I had a message I would say it would be nice for them to show him they want him to stay.”
Here’s Demba Ba’s Twitter account if you want to send him a note, asking him to stay at Newcastle.
And the striker talked in the Sunday Mirror today, and he says it would be great to get into Europe with Newcastle for next season, and he has said once again that he ignores the reports linking him in the summer with other clubs:
“We have got ourselves into a very good position. We have put ourselves into a situation where have a great chance of getting into Europe and that would be a big achievement.”
“We’re working hard every day to make sure we stay focused over the last nine games of the season starting with West Bromwich.” “West Brom beat us at our ground before Christmas and that hurt us very hard.
“This is a big club that deserves to play European football, but we have some tough games coming up over the next few weeks and it is up to us to make sure we give ourselves a chance.
“I don’t listen to the talk. I am thinking only of helping Newcastle to qualify for Europe. Nothing else interests me.” “I’m feeling good about the run-in and enjoying playing alongside Papiss.”
“It takes time to get used to things when you move to a new country, but he’s scoring goals, and that’s all you can ask of a striker.” “I was delighted Papiss got the winner against Norwich City in our last game and it was a goal that’s typical of him. “
“He was quick to see the opportunity when Jonas Gutierrez provided the cross, and then more so to hit the target with a shot that gave the keeper no chance at all.”
It’s good to have two natural goalscorers in the side in Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse, and if they keep showing the form they have shown over the last few games, they could certainly fire Newcastle to a European place for next seaosn
And that would be even more reason why Ba, the 26 year-old Senegal striker, who is a big favorite with fans on Tyneside, would have no reason to leave Newcastle.
That sounds very good to us and here’s Demba’s official web-site , in case you want to contact Ba directly, which you can do via the Contact box at the top, on the far right.
Let’s make sure we keep this lad at Newcastle United.
