Demba Ba Demba Ba has attracted interest from all over Europe after his goal scoring exploits for surprise package Newcastle United. Where the real interest comes is in the fact that Ba has a £7m release clause in his contract that does not expire until the 31 July. Tottenham have been hot on the heels of the Toon frontman since January when they opted to sign Louis Saha instead. However now their sights have shifted back onto the Senegalese striker. Newcastle have made keeping the 27-year-old a priority this summer and, since Tottenham missed out on Champions League football, the Magpies might just be able to stop the star man’s head from being turned.
