Newcastle boss Pardew: Demba Ba has everything

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew has hailed top scorer Demba Ba as one with the lot.

Ba scored his 14th goal of the campaign in the 2-0 Boxing Day victory at Bolton which ended a six-game wait for a league win.

Pardew, who is bracing himself for the Senegal international's departure on African Nations Cup duty next month, said: "He's just one of those players who has everything, really, as a striker.

"There's not much to his game that he hasn't got, and that stands you in good stead.

"When any chance comes your way, you are going to have a good armory to get a goal."
