Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has delivered a frosty response to speculation over striker Demba Ba's future on Tyneside.

The 50-year-old was dismayed to read stories suggesting Tottenham could be ready to activate a release-clause in the Senegal international's contract this month after a stunning 15-goal start to his Magpies' career.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp was asked about the 26-year-old on Friday, and his reply sparked a frenzy of rumours but, when asked about the matter on Saturday, a terse Pardew said: "I thought, listening to the conversation, that the media tripped him up a little bit, Harry."
