Demba Ba remains at Newcastle United after deadline passes

Senegal international striker Demba Ba has remained a Newcastle player after the deadline to activate a release clause in his contract passed.

The story is too old to be commented.

7m release clause that expired yesterday, can't believe no club wanted to make a bid for him

I'm sure Newcastle are relieved. I'm kind of glad as well, because now we'll see if last season was just a flash in the pan or not. Unlikely, because he and Cisse do look class, but you never know.

How come no club wanted him? He's lethal when playing as a striker.

Clubs might've forgotten about him once Pardew shifted him on the wing and stopped scoring, all the attention focused on Cisse.

I'm more surprised that Ba didn't apply for a transfer request, I would've done it if I was at his place

What a relief. Looking forward to Ba and Cisse continuing at the club.
