Ba Representatives Infuriate Pardew

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has hit out at representatives of Demba Ba with the striker’s future at the club hanging in the balance.

The Senegalese hit-man has a £7m release clause in his contract that has attracted the attention of a number of clubs.

Ba’s prolificacy this season would make him a bargain buy for any club and it is rumoured that many in Europe are clamouring to secure his signature.

Pardew still remains hopeful that his star-man will stay and would like to resolve the player’s contract issue as soon as possible.

"In some respects, I feel a little bit sorry for Demba as well," Pardew told reporters. "Because I think people who are representing him are not actually representing him.

"There are people out there who are saying this who are not actually involved or want to be involved, and that's the sort of world we are in.

"The contract is what it is, we are all aware of that, and for me as the manager I need it resolved as quickly as possible. That's the best situation for our fans and for the club."

Newcastle have offered Ba a new deal that would see the release clause removed but Pardew says that the deal does not remain on the table indefinitely.

The situation with that is that it's getting close to the point where we say 'no more', but the offer is still there."
