We don’t know where the latest Demba Ba situation will end up in January, since we were told by Alan Pardew that there was a chance Demba Ba could leave Newcastle in January.
Demba Ba – NUFC is legendary club – how I could I not be happy
One thing is for sure, and that is we are not looking forward to the January transfer window if this situation remains unresolved and there is indeed a release clause that becomes in Ba’s contract.
Of course we don’t really know much – just some words from Alan Pardew yesterday, and he seemed to be saying some release clause kicks in once January rolls around.
And it’s not clear to us what the situation is with Demba Ba himself, who by all accounts seems to just love it at Newcastle, and during the summer he always said he never wanted to leave, and he was true to his word once August 1s arrived and he was still on Tyneside.
But this time we also know that Newcastle are trying to tie the player down to a new contract, but that his wage demands are excessive, but are these the wage demands of Demba Ba or of his agents, who are after as much money as they can get?
It’s not clear, and may never be clear, but the thing we hope will happen is that Ba will sign a new deal before the end of the year.
e keep checking Demba Ba’s twitter account and he’s put some positive things on there this week about Newcastle two of his tweets are as follows
“Good night people. So proud for that 1,000th goal. I’m not a legend like people say, but nufc is a legendary club!!!”
He put that one up on Tuesday morning – so he didn’t come across as wanting to leave Newcastle with that comment did he.
And then yesterday he put this comment up:
“I am happy where I am my friend. How can’t I be happy? I play for NUFC”
So it’s hard to know what really is going on, but as we said we want this sorted out and want the big man to sign a new deal to stay on Tyenside.
One thing is clear – after he rescued us with those two excellent goals on Monday night at Everton – he will get a great reception from the crowd on Sunday afternoon at St. James’ Park, when we entertain Norwich City and Chris Hughton.
We’re just hoping for the best with this new situation with Demba Ba.
