Alan Pardew is a little worried that Demba Ba may leave the club in January, when his release clause becomes active again, and we are likely to see another circus created by his agents, who are trying to make money out of him.
Demba Ba – out of Newcastle’s hands
Demba has again been brilliant for Newcastle this season, and has 10 goals in his 16 appearances for Newcastle – and he got another great brace for the Magpies in our fantastic 3-0 win against Wigan Athletic last Monday night.
The rumors are out there every Sunday and a couple of times during the week that specific clubs are after the 27 year-old Senegal striker, but that’s not much different from what it was like in the summer, and he didn’t leave then.
Manager Pardew is now hoping that Demba Ba, who is simply adored by Newcastle fans – will show some loyalty to Newcastle, who showed faith in him last year, after his suspect knees failed a medical at Stoke City almost two years ago.
But Alan said he can do nothing about Ba leaving if a club comes in with around £7M in January:
“It’s out of my hands and it’s out of the club’s hands to a degree.” “We have tried to remove the clause but without success.” “It’s still there but Demba’s still our player and it’s still going to take a lot for him to leave.”
“I think he has a lot of loyalty to us. We’ve done brilliantly for him as a football club, given him a platform and it would be a blow to us to lose him in the next window.”
Demba Ba can become an even bigger hero at Newcastle, if he signs a new deal and stays on Tyneside – Newcastle fans like to see loyalty in our players, and Ba has a big chance now to become an even bigger hero on Tyneside.
And in the immortal words of Elvis Presley – we want you – we need you and we love you.
Sign for us Demba Ba.
