Irons Ba chances are slim

Demba BaClaretandHugh has learned that former favourite Demba Ba is unlikely to be tempted back to West Ham United.

Speculation that the Chelsea hitman is an £8 million Hammers target has been doing the rounds  for several weeks with his Stamford Bridge days looking to be behind him.

The Irons are believed to have made a move for the 29 year old Senegal international last summer but were unable to clinch a deal with Arsenal also interested.

ClaretandHugh has had it confirmed that last season’s eight goal Blues striker has been discussed at a high level in the club.

But a source close to the player also told us: “Demba sees himself as a Champions League player and our information is that Arsenal may make a bid.

“Nothing’s impossible but a move back to Upton Park wouldn’t be the most likely prospect at the moment.”
