Newcastle boss Pardew confident keeping Ba
Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp was asked about the 26-year-old on Friday, and his reply sparked a frenzy of rumours.
However, asked about the matter on Saturday, a terse Pardew said: "I thought, listening to the conversation, that the media tripped him up a little bit, Harry.
"You don't want to end up talking about other players in the transfer window and I am sure he probably regrets that a little bit.
"He's a Newcastle player, he has been brilliant for us and that's all I want to say, really."
