Football Direct News is reporting that former striker Demba Ba is now seriously thinking about whether he should make a return to Newcastle.
Demba Ba – coming home?
Ever since Ba left Newcastle in January of last year he has struggled at Chelsea, but when he has been given games he has shown he can still score goals in the Premier League.
Demba Ba will tune 29 on Sunday, and he scored some crucial goals for Chelsea towards the end of the season, but Jose Mourinho remains unconvinced about the strikers he currently has at the London club, and will bring in some top new strikers this summer.
The news is that Newcastle are reaching out to Ba with a very good contract offer to return to Tyneside, and if Newcastle can pull this one off – it would be a coup – and something that certainly would please Newcastle fans, who haven’t had too much to be happy about all this year.
Demba Ba will seriously consider the offer and a potential move back to Tyneside, but it still has to be a long shot.
Other bigger clubs are also likely to be after the striker this summer, but Demba will know he will be playing in front of 52,000 passionate fans at St. James’ Park, and he has talked fondly of his short eighteen months at the club.
It would be just great if Newcastle can get Demba Ba back on Tyneside, where he was a huge favorite, and scored 29 goals in his 58 appearances for Newcastle.
