Ba, 26, has the most prolific scoring record ever since Woody Harrelson and that whole Rampart thing, and has been continuously linked with a move to a 'bigger' club. Having scored 16 goals in 16 games this season already, the magnificent striker insists he couldn't be happier at Newcastle right now, and even had a helping hand in getting Papiss Cisse to move as well.
It's pretty much been confirmed that his contract has a pretty low minimum fee release clause which I would imagine he negotiated so there's a fair chance he'll leave at some point. Most footballers with soul just want to play in the biggest matches that they can, as long as they enjoy those. The rest just want to earn money and look important, like Michael Owen.“I was listening to people saying ‘He’s going here, he’s going there,’ and I had a big smile on my face,” he said.“It was so funny to me. I never talked to anyone about wanting to leave.
Owen cost Newcastle £16million, got injured and moaned a lot while he was at Newcastle, and now he's won actual trophies with Manchester United - Demba Ba was free, has already scored shit loads, is nice but at a trophy-less club, so clearly the karma gods are just biding their time for this one. Perhaps Demba Ba will win the FA Cup for the Toon army next year, or even better, will murder Michael Owen! Who knows? Either way he's not leaving until at least the summer. Hooray!
