Besiktas opt out of Demba Ba move

Besiktas have reportedly opted out of a move to sign Chelsea forward Demba Ba in the upcoming transfer window.

The Senegalese international had been associated with a switch away from the Blues this summer, with Turkish outfit Besiktas considered front-runners to land his services.

However, this now looks unlikely after the Black Eagles' director of football Onder Ozen, revealed that the club President Fikret Orman had failed to get a deal done with the Blues' hierachy.

"Fikret Orman met twice with the CEO of Chelsea - however, a deal did not materialise. We are no longer interested in Ba." He said.

Ba joined Chelsea from Newcastle United in January 2013.
