Pardew blasts Ba's advisers
Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has accused Demba Ba's agents of giving bad advice to their client as the Senegal striker continues to be linked with a move away from St James' Park.
Ba, who has scored 13 goals this season, has a clause in his contract allowing him to leave Newcastle if a club bids £7 million and the former West Ham star has been linked with a host of teams ahead of the January transfer window.
Chelsea were the latest side to express interest, with representatives of Ba reportedly holding talks with the Blues. Those discussions were later described as unproductive.
