Demba Ba set to reject transfer move

Newcastle United striker Demba Ba is set to reject a move to Queens Park Rangers in January according to The Sun.

The Toon hitman is still set to leave the North East in the new year but West London will not be his new home after rejecting a contract offer of £80,000 a week.

Rangers are continuing to spend big in order to establish themselves as a Premier League club but it seems they haven’t learnt from previous mistakes of the likes of Leeds United, Southampton and Portsmouth when it comes to wages.

Scoring goals has certainly been an issue for the side that Harry Redknapp has taken over and despite their first win of the season last week they still sit precariously in the bottom three.

Ba is available to leave Newcastle if a bid of £7.5million or more is placed, due to a clause in his contract, and it is expected that clubs will act in January.
