And to think Sky Bet had the odds of Demba Ba moving to Arsenal in January at 1-2 – and that’s a surprise given the news today that Arsenal, or rather the Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger – is not interested in signing the Senegal striker next month – which may be good news for Newcastle fans.
Demba Ba – Arsene Wenger says they will not be signing him
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has admitted during the build up for tomorrow’s game at the fantastic Emirates Stadium against Newcastle, that while he thinks Demba Ba is a good player, he has ruled out any move for the Newcastle striker.
Ba has scored 11 of Newcastle’s 23 goals in the Premier League this season, and has been in sparkling goal-scoring form ever since he signed for the Magpies on a free transfer last year.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he thinks Ba is a very good player, but when asked if the London club would be signing him next month the manager had this to say:
“”I like Demba Ba, yes, but it is not the right place to speak about him because he plays against us tomorrow. ” “If you ask me ‘do we sign him’, I say no.”
So there you have it (we think) – Arsenal will not be buying Demba ba next month so don’t bother betting on it – and save your money.
Maybe QPR will come in for him next month, but we seriously doubt if Ba would want to join a club that gets 18,000 gates and are bottom of the league, after playing for a club so famously supported as Newcastle United, and Harry Rednapp has said it will be hard for QPR to attract good players in January.
