Demba Ba confirms offers but is staying in Turkey

7 years ago

We recently reported claims in Turkey that West Ham, Newcastle and Tottenham had all enquired about Demba Ba potentially signing in January.

The former United forward only moved to Besiktas in the summer and has been in great form, scoring ten goals already for his new club.

Most transfer stories have little substance but on this occasion there may well have been concrete interest from one or more of the three clubs linked with teh Senegal striker.

Demba Ba has made an official statement thanking clubs who have made offers but reaffirmed that he is happy in Turkey;

“I want to thank those who made offers but I am not moving to England or another country, my main focus is Besiktas.

“Players get offers and enquiries from time to time but all I am focused on is winning the league, cup and making the Europa League final, that’s all I am thinking about.

“I have been blown away by the support of the fans, I’m really happy here and feel I made the right decision coming to Istanbul.”
