Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has ruled out a move for Newcastle striker Demba Ba.

Ba has been on top form for the Magpies this season, scoring 11 goals to add to the 16 he bagged last term. Toon boss Alan Pardew admitted on Thursday that Ba would be sold if he did not remove the £7.5million release clause in his contract.

"I like Demba Ba, yes," Wenger said ahead of his team's match against Newcastle. "I don't think [this] is the right place to speak about that, because he plays against us. I wouldn't like to put Newcastle or us or him in an uncomfortable position. If you ask me 'do we sign Demba Ba?' I say no."
