The January transfer window is about to open and it appears that Demba Ba could be leaving St James’ Park, with the player’s buy-out clause at Newcastle common knowledge which has led to wild speculation over the player’s future.

On Monday, news broke that representatives of the player would be seeking talks with other clubs after discussions with Chelsea broke down and Alan Pardew is unhappy that this information was made public, especially as Newcastle are struggling at the wrong end of the Premier League.
He said: “In some respects, I feel a little bit sorry for Demba as well because I think people who are representing him are not actually representing him.
“There are people out there who are saying this who are not actually involved or want to be involved, and that’s the sort of world we are in.
“The contract is what it is, we are all aware of that, and for me as the manager I need it resolved as quickly as possible. That’s the best situation for our fans and for the club.”
Newcastle have tried their best to tie Ba to a new contract although it appears they have failed in their aim to keep the player at St James’ Park.
