Pardew sure Ba is happy

Alan Pardew is confident Demba Ba will not seek a move away from Newcastle United this summer.

• Ba plays down rumours

Ba, 27, enjoyed a brilliant debut season at Newcastle after he joined the club on a free transfer, going on to score 16 goals in 34 Premier League appearances.

His impressive goalscoring form has led to suggestions of growing interest in his signature, with Galatasaray the latest club to be mentioned, but Pardew is sure he is happy on Tyneside.

"I've not seen any sign from Demba that he wants to leave," Pardew said in the Northern Echo. "He's actually training very, very well and looking good, that doesn't suggest he wants another club. I don't sense that.

"He has not stressed to me he wants to move to pastures new. He has said to me he wants some reassurance from me he wants a more striking role this season and I think he will.

"He played a couple of roles that were unorthodox for me last season to help the team, that's the sort of person he is. He wants to play through the middle and score goals, that's what he does best."
