BATTERY OR IS IT ?

1997 Volkswagen Golf • 4 cylinder 2WD Manual • 140 miles

Hi I have a p reg vw golf tdi it wont start or evan turn over evan when I try to jump it and the jump cable get hot very quickly when it was working it would be harder and harder to start the longer I left it between drives is this a question of a new battery or is the car losing the charge of the battery or something different altogether?

Suspect starter fault with jumper cable getting hot indicates HIGH amperage draw from starter
