Krul insists Newcastle players happy for Ba over Chelsea move

Newcastle United goalkeeper Tim Krul says Demba Ba moves to Chelsea with the players' best wishes.

The striker's switch has not helped team harmony, with Newcastle just two points off the drop zone and facing a tricky FA Cup test at Brighton tomorrow.

Team-mate Krul, though, said: "Fair play to the lad for going to Chelsea. He has been magnificent for us and deserves his move.

"I don't think we're shell-shocked about that because we knew it was hanging over us anyway.

"As long as we get a good replacement, that's the most important thing."
