Newcastle boss Alan Pardew is confident he will find a replacement for Demba Ba after seeing his side slip deeper into relegation trouble with a 2-1 defeat to Everton.

The 27-year-old Senegal international was in London to discuss his move to Chelsea as the Magpies slipped to their ninth in 11 Barclays Premier League games that left them just two points clear of the relegation zone.

However, with France full-back Mathieu Debuchy among the crowd at St James' Park ahead of a medical, Pardew said: "There is a positive because if he had gone with two days to go of the window and we hadn't got a replacement in, suddenly we are in real trouble. We have got time and hopefully that will work in our favour."
