Demba Ba joins Chinese football club Shanghai Shenhua in record-breaking transfer
Demba Ba has completed his move to Shanghai Shenhua from Besiktas after his impressive season in Turkey, scoring 27 goals in 44 matches.
According to 101greatgoals:
The fee for Ba was undisclosed but Chinese media outlet, Xenhua news agency, reckon that the three-year deal is worth up to £11.3m.
The Senegalese striker is rumoured to have had the opportunity to return to the Premier League with West Brom boss Tony Pulis keen on signing him up.
Instead he joins former Everton hero Tim Cahill at Shanghai Shenhua.
Shanghai Shenhua already have the former Everton forward Tim Cahill on their books and signed the Mali midfielder, Mohamed Sissoko, on a free transfer from Levante last week.
