It’s August 1st, and presumably the deadline for Demba Ba’s release clause for £7M in his contract has now run out, and that’s good news for Newcastle – so with any luck we’ll have Papiss Cisse and Demba Ba up front next season – and that cannot be bad.
Demba Ba – he kept his word and stayed on Tyneside
With all the reports about Demba Ba leaving Newcastle this summer, we have to hand it to the Senegal striker, and he said all along that he didn’t want to leave Newcastle, and he was true to his word – good man.
And let’s face it, these are the types of players we want at Newcastle, the ones who want to be here, and those who are proud to wear the black and white strips of Newcastle.
I just wanted to acknowledge Demba Ba and thank him for staying at Newcastle, when it would have been so easy for him to cash in for a much bigger wage elsewhere.
Now we hope that Newcastle will negotiate a new deal with him, but if the local papers are to be believed, that will not be until next summer.
That’s a long way off and we hope that Demba will have knocked in quite a few more goals for Newcastle before then.
Bottom line – it’s great to have Demba Ba still at Newcastle United.
