Demba Ba insists he's committed to Newcastle United.

The 26-year-old hotshot, who has scored 16 goals since arriving on Tyneside in a free transfer, says he is happy where he is for now.

Ba said: "I never talked to anyone to say I wanted to leave.

"I was just listening to people saying or writing 'He's going there, he's going there' and I had a big smile on my face.

"The most important thing is being happy with your football and I am happy here."
