We were a little upset to fins out last week that it seems that Demba Ba has another £7M release clause in his contract at Newcastle, and it seems to activate in the January transfer window, and this is after the release clause was active for June and July in the summer, but thankfully the Senegal striker didn’t leave the club.
Demba Ba - after scoring his goal yesterday
The fact hat the release clause is active again in January was revealed by Alan Pardew after the Everton 2-2 draw on Monday night, after be had been benched but came on in the second half to score two good goals to get Newcastle a valuable point.
This is what Demba Ba had to say to the local Newcastle press today:
“The best time to do your talking is during the 90 minutes.” “That’s exactly it – that is what football is about.” “It should be played on the pitch when it’s 11 versus 11.”
“I’m delighted.” “To have a win and a goal is great for me.” “It was a great pass from Hatem, and to get three points as well means you can’t ask for any more.”
“It could have made it easier if we converted the penalty, but we are a team, and we wanted Papiss to get going – that’s all.” “Jonas came up with the idea, but unfortunately he missed it.”
“The three points were the most important thing.” “We know Cisse will come good, he just has to find his way back to the goal. He will continue to work After that, it is in the hands of God.”
“Who knows what is going to happen for him and for us in the future?”
It’s going to be very hard to have to go through all that stuff we went through over the summer, wondering if some clubs will come in and take Demba Ba away from Newcastle.
We have to hope that Newcastle can somehow get Demba Ba to sign a new deal, and he’s worth quite a good wage after all he’s done at Newcastle - with 20 goals in 42 appearance for the Tyneside club.
And this is what Demba Ba tweeted on his Twitter account after the game yesterday:
“When you got players like yohan or hatem. It make football look easy…”
The last word on the Senegal striker - sign this lad up to a good long term contract and keep him at the club.
