Newcastle expect striker signing in 48 hours

Newcastle United expect to make a striker signing in the next 48 hours.

The Daily Mail says Demba Ba’s agents staged talks with Chelsea last night and the European champions are expected to trigger his £7m January 1 release clause tomorrow.

Newcastle have accepted Ba’s departure and are confident his replacement will be at St James’ Park to watch the team play Everton on Wednesday.
