Former Hammer Ba to join Shanghai

BaBeşiktaş have released a statement on the Turkish stock exchange that former Hammer Demba Ba is in talks with Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua. The statement read: “Shanghai Shenhua are in talks with Demba Ba.”

Süper Lig clubs generally release statements of this nature as a formality before disclosing the completion of the transfer.The Chinese giants are reported to have reached an agreement for a £9.8m transfer for Ba on a £4.9m per-season salary worth over £94,000 per week.

The Senegalese international arrived in China to finalise talks, undergo a medical and sign with Shenhua.

Ba was rumoured to be holding out for a Premier League return and was recently linked to return to West Ham in the media after Slaven Bilic joined West Ham but as we reported back at the beginning of June, Slaven gave no indication to the board that he wanted to bring Demba Ba back to Upton Park.

  1. Part of his deal involves a sweet sponsorship on the condition he lives a devout life in a convent so they’ll be making Ba humbugs as long as he’s the best Ba nun. Has someone tampered with my pipe tobacco lol

  2. Always said he was too mercenary for my liking and showed us no loyalty or respect.Yes Ba humbug!

  3. So China will be propping up the Ba?

  4. …and furthermore – China’s nowhere near far enough.

  5. …it’s his mother’s fault – ever since she raised the Ba…
