Newcastle United may be forced to double Demba Ba's wages in order to keep the striker at St James' Park.

Newcastle United may be forced to double Demba Ba's wages amid interest in the player from clubs such as Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain.

Ba sparked worry for the Magpies this week by saying that a move to Paris would be "enticing" and further panic ensued when Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp revealed that Ba has a release clause of less than £7m in his contract.

Newcastle have a salary cap in place, but The Mirror reports that owner Mike Ashley would be willing to make an exception in order to keep the 26-year-old at the club.

Ba has scored 15 goals for Newcastle so far this season.
