Newcastle Offer Demba Ba Fantastic Four Year Deal

There was news in the Sun on Saturday that we missed,  about Demba Ba’s new deal.

Demba Ba in action at West Brom yesterday

The Sun are reporting that Newcastle have offered Demba  Ba a new four year improved deal,  to stay on Tyneside.

That’s hardly surprising since Harry Redknapp spilled the beans  in January,  that his current contract has a £7M release clause in it.

It was almost certain that Newcastle would renegotiate his contract and improve his deal, as they have already done for captain Fab Coloccini and Tim Krul this year.

Demba is supposed to be on £35K/week with his current deal, which was signed before he hit 16 goals for Newcastle, and when he still had that dodgy knee, that was bad enough for him to fail his medical 15 months ago at Stoke City.

Since then Demba has been voted as the signing of the season by the Premier League managers, and the news is that’s he’s been offered £50K/week basic wages to stay at Newcastle.

We have no idea how accurate these figures are, but he deserves more than that if he was already getting £35K/week, but the Sun  are also reporting that Newcastle are going to offer him another £5M,  as a signing on fee, spread acros the four years of his contract.

If that’s true then it means another £24K/week over the four years – so that the total amount is around £74K/week for four years, and that’s an excellent deal from Newcastle for their top striker, and will keep him at Newcastle until 2016.

And it’s about what captain Fabricio Coloccini was said to have accepted recently,  on his new four year extension to his contract.

Newcastle signed Demba Ba to a three-year contract he signed last summer, but if he moves and that £7M release clause is triggered,  he pockets around £3M of the fee, and Newcastle get very little of what remains.

And that’s why it’s obviously in Newcastle’s best interests to keep this top striker at the club.

Ba has often said he is happy to stay at Newcastle, but he will now meet with his advisers this week,  to decide if he should accept the deal, or wait until the summer and move on.

And that’s probably why manager Alan Pardew said at the weekend that he would like Newcastle fans to tell Demba Ba they want him to stay on Tyneside.

It seems this week is very important, so if you want to contract Demba Ba and ask him to stay at Newcastle, you can do his via these contacts:

Demba Ba is not only an excellent striker but he’s a great lad too, and he seems perfectly fitted for Newcastle.

Ba had a really good game yesterday too, and his link up play with Ben Arfa and fellow Senegal striker Papiss Cisse was excellent.

The three of them ran riot with West Brom in that startling first half yesterday, where Newcastle looked a top attacking side and virtually had the game won at 3-0.

Let’s keep Demba Ba on Tyneside.

    Find it hard to believe the part about a staggered signing on fee. MA doesn’t do paying in installments.

    I hope not having two decent centre backs doesn’t affect our points tally too much,8th instead of 5th or 6th could end up costing a lot more than it would have cost to bring in a back up.

    Anyone else see this post on friday? I’ve been living in fear since!:

    On this day, seven heavenly rotations from now, at 17.00 hrs, he shall return to us.

    It has been prophised and so it shall be, it is now written in scripture and so it shall be, I am the word of him and so it shall be.

    He will rise again. He shall return to save you from this masquearade. False prophets will fall and the valley shall burn, optimism shall give way to hope and he will be the one to deliver it to you and deliver you from yourselves.

    7 days…

    5 days to go! Do you think it was some weirdo or what?

    Does anyone know what was wrong with Cisse????

    Our defence is gonna get murdered by Suarez & Carroll next week, we seriously needed Colo in the team & now we’re gonna get mugged to hell & back…

    Just hope our strikers can do the same to them & we get a draw out of it, as I know Willo will tackle Suarez & give a peno away as ‘Suarez the diving git’ is doing it every frackin game now…… 🙁

    Cisse was just bad cramp mate, Pardew has said he will bie fine.

    With Perch I would tell him to just sweep and let willo deal with anything arial against Carrol.

    I think we can turn them over next week I really do, Im only worried about Bellamy and Gerrard really.

    Cheers Colo-sus… haven’t seen owt about Cisse so just wondered…

    I’m hoping Tiote will be back next week to keep Gerrard in cheick 😉 😉 excuse the pun there…

    As for Bellend, I think Jonas & Santon should be able to keep hiim in tow, hopefully… either that or Tiote take his legs out at the start.. lol

    Anyone noticed his role as a centre midfield last night? The work rate this player has and how versatile he is is amazing! I’d play Cabaye, Tiote and Jonas as a the three centre midfielders against Liverpool. This formation gives the three players up front more freedom and less tracking back especially benefiting HBA!

    Would be good to get BA signed on to a new contract which will end all the crap stories about buy-out clauses!

    Suarez is good at diving in the penalty area! He is well known for it here in Holland!

    Hopefully we will get a decent Ref on the day who will take this into account!

    Leaving begging messages to players is embarrassing. Still cringe when I think of the emails, tweets and messages sent to Enrique and Gervinho nufc fans sent. It doesn’t work. Just makes us look like gimps.
