NUFC Run Into Another £7m ‘Clause’

8 years ago

With the Demba Ba contract ‘clause’ situation showing no signs of a conclusion, Newcastle are now being linked with a player in a similar situation.

Mohamed Diame has been arguably West Ham’s star man this season, following his arrival as an out of contract player from Wigan in the summer.

As in Demba Ba’s case, a player arriving without a fee on his head means that he’s got a pretty strong hand when it comes to dictating contract terms.

In Diame’s case it has been reported by various media that he has a £7m clause which would trigger a transfer.

The 25 year old looked  a decent player on Sunday and little surprise that with this story breaking today and our defeat fresh in the news, Newcastle’s name has been added to the clubs claimed to be interested.

Diame is an international teammate of Senegal’s Ba and Cisse, very much in the defensive midfielder role, the player has only scored half a dozen goals in just over three years in England.
