One difficulty with Demba Ba, and why there have been, and will be more stories of him with leaving Newcastle this summer, is that he seems to have a number of different people saying the represent him.
Demba Ba – many people say they represent him
Maybe they are all trying to get into the mix, so they can paid, if and when Ba leaves Newcastle for another club.
Ba was linked with Turkish giants Galatasaray yesterday, and it’s difficult to know what news is true and which is the made up news at this time of year – and we know most of it is made up.
Newcastle are well aware that there are a number of people associated with the Senegal striker, who are trying to get him a transfer away from Tyneside, because they are hoping for a payoff, if such a move ever materializes.
But the news today is that Newcastle are still fairly relaxed about the Demba Ba situation.
Demba is represented by his brother, and he came out yesterday and said the news that Demba Ba had signed at Galatasaray was simply nonsense.
While Demba Ba has never expressed any desire to leave Newcastle, in fact quite the opposite, Alan Pardew and others at the club, are still uncertain about what his intentions are, and we reported earlier in the week that Newcastle will demand an answer fairly quickly from the 27 year-old, so they can properly plan to replace him in the summer.
But it’s not Demba that’s causing all the stories about him leaving the Magpies so far this summer, it’s his so called agents or representatives who are simply complicatings things, especially for Newcastle.
And don’t expect much transfer business at the moment, since Managing Director Derek LLambias and Secretary Lee Charnley are both out of the country on holiday, and they are both part of the Brains Trust on Tyneside, at least as far as transfers go.
