Newcastle United striker Demba Ba admits he'd love to play for PSG.

Newcastle are hopeful of keeping the 15-goal hitman despite it being revealed he has a £7million buy-out clause in his contract.

Ba, currently on African Nations Cup duty with Senegal, said: "Join PSG? Yes, why not? It's possible.

"I've always supported PSG. It's a club that's enticing. But it will be difficult to do that in January.

"I'm in Newcastle, fans like me, and then the transfer market will be closed when I go back, so I'm not focused on it.

"My first goal is the African Nations Cup then I want to continue playing good for Newcastle."

Ba, 26, is loving life as a Premier League hitman, as he used to stop goals. He added: "Until I was 18 or 19 I was a defensive midfielder."
