Newcastle striker Demba Ba has finalised his move to European champions Chelsea.

The Blues unveiled their new signing this lunchtime after he agreed a three-and-a-half year deal at Stamford Bridge.

Ba said: “It feels good to be here, I’m very happy and very proud,” the 27-year-old told the Chelsea club website.

“It was important for me, and for Newcastle, to get my future sorted and now we can move on.”

Blues fans not wishing to splash out on a new replica shirt mid-season are advised to peel the ‘DROG’ from their old Didier Drogba jerseys.
