Demba Ba remained a Newcastle player on Wednesday morning after the deadline to activate his release-clause passed.

The 27-year-old Senegal international had repeatedly expressed his desire to remain on Tyneside and Alan Pardew was confident of retaining his services, although with speculation continuing over his future, there was a sense of trepidation as the July 31 cut-off point neared.

It is understood the clause would have been triggered at £7.5million, and that any club still interested in securing the former Hoffenheim frontman's services would have to come up with double that to prise him away from the Magpies before the closure of the summer transfer window at the end of this month.
