Shanghai Shenhua sign former Chelsea striker Demba Ba
Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua have completed the signing of former West Ham, Newcastle and Chelsea striker Demba Ba from Turkish side Besiktas.
The 30-year-old Senegalese international had been heavily linked with a move to West Brom over the last week but has now completed a shock transfer to China.
Didier Drogba, another former Chelsea striker, played 11 games for Shanghai Shenhua in 2012 - scoring eight goals in the process.
The deal is believed to be worth around €13m (£9.2m) to Besiktas, a fee which they understandably felt they could not turn down for the 30-year-old who they bought last summer for just over €6.5m.
Ba impressed in his one year in Turkey, scoring an outstanding 27 goals in 44 games in all competitions.
