Ba-d news for Toon as Demba admits he'd love to play for PSG
Demba Ba has delivered the news Newcastle supporters have been dreading – he would jump at the chance of a move to his heroes Paris Saint-Germain.
Ba is a massive fans' favourite on Tyneside thanks to his 15 Premier League goals this season but his form has attracted the attention of a host of other clubs.
The 26-year-old striker signed a three-year deal at St James' Park when he arrived on a free in the summer but he is reported to have a 10million buyout clause in his contract.
On a run: Demba Ba has helped himself to 15 Premier League goals this season
Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is a known admirer while big-spending PSG, with Carlo Ancelotti in charge, are keeping a close eye on Ba's situation.
Ba is with Senegal at the Africa Cup of Nations so a January move is unlikley but Newcastle could face a fight to keep him beyond the summer.
He said: 'Join PSG Yes, why not It's possible. I've always supported PSG. It's a club that's enticing. But it will be difficult to do that in January.
'I'm in Newcastle, fans like me, and then the transfer market will be closed when I go back (from the Africa Cup of Nations), so I'm not focused on it.
'My first goal is the Africa Cup of Nations then I want to continue playing good for Newcastle.'
Sign off: Ba left for international duty after this goal in the win over Man United
