Ba contract talks stall

Published Add your comment

Newcastle striker Demba Ba is yet to be persuaded to sign a new deal at St James' Park as the January transfer window looms.

Press Association Sport understands the 27-year-old Senegal international has rejected the club's latest offer as they attempt to negotiate out the release clause contained in his initial contract. Despite concerted speculation during the summer, no potential suitor activated the £7.5million get-out which could have lured the former West Ham frontman away.

However, while supporters heaved a sigh of relief that last season's leading scorer would be staying on Tyneside, manager Alan Pardew revealed that the clause would become active once again next month.
