Ba reaffirms Toon commitment

Demba Ba has reiterated his commitment to Newcastle United amid fresh speculation over his future on Tyneside.

• Ba happy at Newcastle

Ba, 27, enjoyed a prolific debut season at Newcastle, scoring 16 goals in 34 Premier League appearances after joining the club on a free transfer last summer.

The latest sides to be linked with the Senegal international are Liverpool and Russian side Rubin Kazan, with reports suggesting the forward's alleged £7.5 million release clause expires in four days.

Ba, however, told The Journal: "I don't care what is being said. I think is part of the game. However, I have never said anything other than I love being at Newcastle.

"If they hear something from me about my future, that is the truth. Otherwise everything that is said is not true.

"The newspapers and I are not very friendly at the moment. For months and months and months people have been talking about me but there is nothing happening.

"Of course, I am looking forward to next season with Newcastle. We just have to build on the progress we made last season. For me, I just can't wait to start the first game."
