But a return to Newcastle is NOT on the cards ... unless Alan Pardew gets the sack!
Demba Ba’s agent says the striker grew disillusioned with his role at Newcastle United.
It all goes back to when Ba came off the bench to score two goals in United's 2-2 draw against Everton at Goodison Park.
The striker hinted at his unhappiness behind the scenes after the game, while his brother, Hamady, labelled United manager Alan Pardew “crazy” for dropping him from his starting XI.
The 27-year-old’s representative, Alex Gontran, said at the time Ba “doesn’t understand the management” at the club.
Ba was switched to a role on the left wing after Papiss Demba Cisse’s arrival in January, and this change frustrated the Senegal international, according to Gontron.
His goals dried up and he moved to Chelsea.
Alex Gontran: “Demba never understood the management at Newcastle.
“How could you put your best striker, with full confidence, on the left wing?
“There was a lack of recognition for Demba. It’s more difficult to play well when you don’t have the confidence of your staff.”
