Ba: Blues On Another Level

Chelsea new boy Demba Ba believes that his new club is on a different level to his former sides Newcastle United and West Ham.

The 27-year-old completed his switch to Stamford Bridge on Friday following lengthy speculation that the player was set to leave Tyneside.

Alan Pardew criticised the striker's agents for misrepresenting their client and leading him away from the club, but also said that the Senegal international went with their blessing.

Ba believes that he has taken a big step forward in his career and is looking for to playing alongside some of the top talent in the world.

"This club (Chelsea) is at another level. It isn't West Ham or Newcastle," he told reporters.

"They are both big clubs with a strong history, but Chelsea is Chelsea and you cannot compare.

"It will be easier with world-class players around, who make the football look so easy.

"I hope my new team-mates can create a lot of chances for me when I play.

"I have watched some replays of some games to see how the team is playing and hopefully it will be good."
