Newcastle United hotshot Demba Ba could quit for a knockdown price, it has been revealed.

The Daily Mail says Ba has put England's top clubs on red alert when it emerged he has a £10million release clause in his Newcastle contract.

Although Newcastle have no intention of allowing Ba to leave, he could trigger the release clause in his contract if a top club matched the figure.

He negotiated a similar clause when he moved to West Ham and was able to quit on a free transfer when they were relegated to the Championship.
