Newcastle line up WBA striker for Ba



Newcastle United are hunting for West Bromwich Albion's Nigerian forward, Peter Osaze Odemwingie to replace Senegalese Demba Ba, according to The Sun.

"(Newcastle manager) Alan Pardew is lining up West Brom striker, Peter Odemwingie as Demba Ba’s replacement," a report in The Sun on Wednesday read.

According to the British tabloid, "talks were ongoing" from New Year's Day between the clubs to do a deal on Odemwingie.

Pardew is said to be keen to lure away the 31-year-old for £3 million.

Odemwingie is reported to have just 18 months left on his contract and the Toon manager will hope to capitalise on that to sign the forward as they are resigned to losing Ba, who is strongly linked with a move to Chelsea and a host of other top European clubs.

The Sun also reports that Albion chiefs are ready to farm out Odemwingie before his value drops.

In 2011, Odemwingie was linked with a move to a Qatari club before the deal fell through.
