Tottenham boss Redknapp tells Newcastle: Everyone now wants Ba

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has admitted he's interested in Newcastle United striker Demba Ba.

Redknapp feels just about every team in the Premier League will be keen on the Senegal international.

“Demba Ba's done great hasn’t he? Everybody's looking at him suddenly," said Redknapp.

“Anybody could have had him a year ago. Full credit to Alan Pardew, he took him.

“He's done a fantastic job [and] what a strike-rate he's got. He's probably the most in-form striker anywhere at the moment.

“He's certainly done well and it will be interesting to see what happens there, but at the moment he's doing great things for Newcastle.

“He's off to play in the African Cup of Nations now so he's going to be away for a month or so, so that’s a difficult one.

“At the moment Newcastle have got him and I’m sure Alan wants to keep him. He'd be disappointed if he had to lose him. He would be difficult to replace.”
