We suppose ever since Harry Redknapp in his wisdom, told the world that Demba Ba had a release clause in his contract for £7M, and it became known that the release clause became inactive once August 1st rolled round, there would be stories of all different clubs trying to sign the Senegal striker.
Demba Ba – looks great in the new Newcastle strip
And that’s exactly what has happened, as Ba has been linked with Galatasaray, Fenerbehce, West Ham, Rubin Kazan and other clubs this summer, but the only constant seems to be that all the reports have been false (what’s new?).
To his credit the big striker, when he has made statements about the situation, has always been positive about staying at Newcastle, and he has said consistently that he wants to stay on Tyneside, and that he likes the City and he loves the Newcastle fans.
We expect there to be no late moves for the striker today – we hope there will be no late moves for the striker today.
And with Newcastle still to sign a senior player this transfer window (so far), it will be good news, indeed great news when Demba Ba is still a Newcastle player tomorrow.
With so little time left before the release clause becomes inactive, there seems no way that Demba Ba will not be a Newcastle player after midnight tonight.
That’s true isn’t it? 😀
