It is great to see him willing to do it but should there be any need for Demba Ba to have to repeatedly say how settled he is at Newcastle United and not agitating to leave?

Speaking to Sky Sports today, Demba Ba had this to say about the Chelsea press speculation:

“It is rumours like you get in football. I am happy with Newcastle and I enjoy being here and playing for the Toon Army. I enjoy being in this team.

We have a good team spirit and I love the North East, where I have my country-mate, Papiss Cissé”.
