Chelsea FC to hold more talks over Demba Ba deal this week - report

Chelsea will reportedly hold further talks with Demba Ba's agent this week.

Ba, who has a £7.5million buy-out clause in his contract at St James' Park, is widely expected to be on the move this month and is a target for a number of Premier League clubs.

Ba's agent had met with Chelsea officials on Sunday evening to discuss a deal, only for the deal to stall over wages.

According to the Daily Mirror, the Blues have offered the Senegal international a £70,000-a-week deal to move to Stamford Bridge, but his representatives are unhappy that he was not offered any kind of bonus or appearance fee.

According to Tuesday's report, further talks will take place in the coming days.

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has urged the forward to make a decision about his future as soon as possible.

"It’s difficult for our fans to really feel that Demba is solid with the team with everything else that’s going on," Pardew said.

"But when he’s played he’s always shown his full ­commitment and I do think he’s becoming a victim of a few sharks around him.

"He needs to make a decision fairly early – for everyone’s sake, most of all himself.

"Our fans need to know if he’ll still be with us to the summer."
