DEMBA STAYING IN NEWCASTLE
Newcastle United striker Demba Ba has said that he is not looking to leave the north-east club at this moment and has laughed off any rumours suggesting that he might move soon.
Demba Ba arrived on a free transfer from West Ham United in the summer, and he has been one of the best signings of the summer.
So far, he has been extremely crucial towards Newcastle United climbing of the table and also making a challenge for the Champions League positions. Luckily, Newcastle United did not miss him for a long due to the African cup of nations, as the striker returned from international duty after this international team got excelled from the competition at a very early stage.
Immediately after his return, Demba Ba scored the winner in the match against Aston Villa during the weekend, thus once again stressing his importance to the club. Demba Ba has quickly enabled Newcastle United fans to forget the memory of Andy Carroll, who moved to Liverpool in a £ 35 million deal just over a year ago. There were questions about the fitness of Demba Ba before he signed for Newcastle United, but the gamble Alan Pardew took with the Senegalese striker seems to have paid off.
It has been recently revealed that Demba Ba could leave Newcastle United for as little as £ 7 million due to a clause in his contract (whihc I personally have been tempted to stick some free Premier League bets on!) but it seems he is happy at the club, especially now his intenational team-mate has joined him in Toon.
"I am really, really happy for Papiss. It's really important to score for a new club early on; when you come in and score right away you feel much better. It helps a lot and his was a goal of real class on the perfect return to Newcastle for me," Demba Ba said after the match when his fellow Senegalese player Cisse scored the opening goal.
