Newcastle United have decided to cash in on Demba Ba next month.

The Mirror says Ba is set to leave Newcastle - within the first week of the January transfer window.

The Magpies have so far been unable to agree a new deal with the striker, and want to move him on early if they cannot convince him to stay so they can focus on bringing in a replacement.

Arsenal, also interested in Schalke striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, and Liverpool are the latest clubs linked with Ba, who will once again be available for a knockdown £7million because of a clause in his contract.
