Why Demba Ba For Andy Carroll In January Will Not Happen

Lots of rumours going around that are interested in a January swap deal with Newcastle, that would see Andy Carroll return to Tyneside with Newcastle striker Demba Ba heading to Anfield. Just one problem with that story. A players cannot play for three Premier League sides in the same season, and since Carroll has already been registered as a Liverpool and player, he cannot play for Newcastle.

But just because Carroll cannot be part of any swap deal, does not mean that the Newcastle striker would not be a good signing for Liverpool. Ba is available for around £7 million, which is an absolute steal in today’s market for a proven Premier League goalscorer.

Magpies boss Alan Pardew last week admitted that Ba could leave the club in January saying.

“There is a clause in his contract that makes us vulnerable to losing him and that situation is ongoing, but we cannot worry about that for now.”

I am really surprised that nobody came in for Ba this summer, when he had the same £7 million release clause his contract.

Do you think that Newcastle will sell Demba Ba in January, and would Liverpool be a good destination for him?
