AFSTZ: Palace prepare bid for Ba
EPL side Crystal Palace are reported to be preparing a bid for Besiktas forward Demba Ba.
According to Eurosport Turkey, the former Chelsea man could be on his way back to England after Besiktas failed to secure Champions League football next season.
Ba played under current Palace boss Alan Pardew at Newcastle and the report suggests that could be a catalyst for a reunion in London.
The Senegalese has been a revelation in Turkey since his arrival in Istanbul last summer scoring a healthy 28 goals in all competitions.
As extended run in the Europa League saw Besiktas eliminate Liverpool with Ba scoring against the English side in the two-legged tie.
However, with no Champions League football next season for The Eagles, Ba could make a move to the Premier League as it’s a more competitive league.
