Newcastle hero Lee says time to sell Ba

Newcastle United hero Rob Lee says they should sell Demba Ba next month.

Newcastle United hero Rob Lee says they should sell Demba Ba next month.

Arsenal look set to trigger Ba’s £7.5million release clause in January, with boss Alan Pardew keen on £10m Marseille star Loic Remy to fill the gap.

And Lee told The Sun: “I’ll be sad to see him go but if I was a betting man I’d have to say he won’t be at Newcastle after the transfer window.

“Even though I have my doubts about whether he can play up front in a two with Papiss Cisse, he’d obviously leave a massive void because of his goal record.

“But if he’s committed to the club, why does he have the release clause?”
