Newcastle United striker Demba Ba does not expect to join Chelsea after his representatives held an unproductive meeting with the European champions on Sunday night and he will now open talks with other clubs, according to Sky Sports News.

Ba has been in excellent form this year and scored his 13th goal of the season during the Geordies 7-3 defeat to Arsenal on Saturday.

The report claims that Ba’s agents met with Blues officials on Sunday evening to discuss a potential January move – with the 27-year-old striker understood to have a £7m release clause in his contract which can be activated as of Tuesday.

However, a move to Chelsea now looks unlikely after the players representatives informed Sky Sports that they don’t expect the Senegalese hitman to move to West London after they failed to reach an agreement and they will now begin talks with other clubs – with Arsenal and Tottenham among those said to be interested.

Ba moved to Newcastle on a free transfer from West Ham in June 2011 and has been a huge hit at St James Park, scoring 29 goals in 54 games. But he looks likely to move on in the coming weeks and just as it seemed he was set to move to Stamford Bridge, the door now appears open to a potential move to either Arsenal or Tottenham.

Will the north London duo now seize the moment and make their move for the striker? Let’s see how this develops over the coming days.

    We already have Giroud who is an exact replica of the type of player Ba is so why would we want him? It’s a rumour made up so other clus rush in and buy him.

    I would be concerned signing BA. He knees are an issue, and so is his age. If we are going to replace Sturridge it makes sense to replace him with a young striker who can grow with the team, and still sign a well developed striker like Falcao in the summer. If we get BA now and Falcao later, we will have two 27 year olds and a 29 year old. Not clever!

    The telepathy between Theo and Giroud should be developed into a more dreadful attack for Arsenal than signing BA and leaving Theo on the wings only for him to leave as a free agent in June.
    Ba is not an exceptional talent. Giroud actually rubs shoulder with the Senegalese. Lets get a defensive midfielder and release Mr.Arteta into a more offensive role.

    If BA love himself let him stay at Newcastle or rather going to other clubs not particularly Arsenal,if not he is on his way out of competitive soccer……His career might be over if at all he join clubs like Chelsea,ManU,and city…….Let him remember he is an african player…Lol
