Magpies close in on Hammers ace

Published Add your comment

Newcastle hope to push through a move for West Ham striker Demba Ba within the next 24 hours.

Press Association Sport understands the 26-year-old Senegal international was due on Tyneside on Thursday, with the Magpies hoping to get their hands on a man upon whom they set their sights several weeks ago.

Former Hoffenheim frontman Ba, who is understood to have a release clause in the contract he signed with the Hammers in January, scored seven goals in 13 appearances for the Londoners last season, but could not prevent them slipping out of the Barclays Premier League.
