There has been much talk about the future of Demba Ba in the Football Transfer Tavern of late and today is no different with Mail Online reporting that he has rejected an £80,000-a-week offer from Premier League strugglers QPR.
Ba looks likely to leave St. James’ Park in the near future with a £7.5 million buy out clause attracting interest across the Premier League and Europe. Arsenal, Spurs, and Liverpool have all been long-term admirers of the striker but reports suggest that QPR have made the first move.
Whether or not the Senegalese striker would join a side likely to be playing football in the Championship remains to be seen but it appears very unlikely which explains the offer being rejected.
The forward has netted 11 times this season and wants far more than the Tyneside club have offered him for a new deal so far with Alan Pardew already thought to be looking for a replacement striker.
Marseille striker Loic Remy has been a name touted in the tavern during the last week and he could be available for around £12 million in January if Ba were to leave the Magpies.
