Magpies boss shrugs off reports of Chelsea interest in trio

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew insists his club has no intention of selling its best players.

Chelsea have been linked with the likes of Cheick Tiote, Demba Ba and goalkeeper Tim Krul, but the Magpies boss believes all three will stay at St James’ Park.

“I think anyone who looks at this football club will know we are difficult sellers,” he said.

“Someone is going to have to pay a lot of money to take one of our players away – especially considering where we are right now, and that we’re having success.”
