Exclusive Claimed On Demba Return To Newcastle

8 years ago

Having just brought you news of claims that Newcastle United were back in for talks with Bafetimbi Gomis, another more recognisable striker is reported to be back on Newcastle’s agenda.

Demba Ba was class on the pitch for United but he never quite felt like one of of our very own players with the constant nonsense every transfer window.

Now the local branch of Mr.Murdoch’s operation, Sky Tyne & Wear, are claiming an exclusive with Newcastle allegedly in contact with Chelsea to bring back Ba on loan to St.James’ Park.

Leaving aside any ill feeling created by his departure, in terms of knowing what you are getting the signature of the striker, even if temporarily (what would be new in Demba’s case!), would give everybody a lift.

If you really wanted to put two and two together then you could speculate what affect a potential Ba return would have on his best mate Yohan Cabaye and his proposed departure.

At one time I would have instantly dismissed such a move for Ba on the basis of wages but the deal for on-loan Remy proves the goalposts have been moved in that respect.

However, I can’t believe that Ashley would sanction having Cisse, Ba, Gomis and Remy all on the payroll so we await to see developments…if any.
