Ba Wants Chelsea Exit

Chelsea striker Demba Ba has admitted that he is ready to leave the London side to seek more first team action.

The Senegal star joined Chelsea from Newcastle in January 2013 but with only three starts to his name this season, the striker will be looking for a move in the summer despite still having two years left on his contract.

"I'm looking to leave Chelsea. I want to play the full 90 minutes, get the maximum number of games and enjoy myself. I've not done that very much this season, and I doubt things will change for me here,” Ba said.

"I could well imagine myself at PSG. That is even though they have taken on a new dimension, and seem to be looking for international stars in the £50million bracket rather than steady ­performers costing £10m.”

"But if PSG are looking for someone to play alongside Zlatan [Ibrahimovic], then I'm their man. They will win the Champions League sooner or later, and not just the one time.”

"Jose Mourinho has never ­explained his decisions to me. I am honestly surprised that I have been this patient. Earlier in my career I would have cracked up or blown a fuse. My friends Eden Hazard and Samuel Eto'o have been ­important. They told me not to give up."
