Former striker has returned to on loan until the end of the season from Shanghai Shenhua. 

Ba originally joined Turkish Super Lig side Besiktas from Chelsea in 2014 before leaving a year later to join Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua. He scored 18 goals during his previous spell with the Turkish side.

The 31-year-old broke his leg last summer when playing for the Chinese side and is now looking to re-establish himself.

“Demba Ba (has arrived) on a temporary transfer until the date 05/31/2017. No compensation will be paid to him or his club,” Besiktas’ club statement read.

West Ham United co-chairman David Sullivan has earlier revealed their interest in signing the Senegalese striker but Ba’s injury stood in the way.

In addition to being a football/soccer and basketball enthusiast, I am currently pursuing a combined BS/MD degree at VCU. I also currently work as a Pharmacy Technician in my spare time.
