Chelsea target Ba content at Newcastle

Newcastle United striker Demba Ba insists he is happy at his current club amidst rumours of interest from Chelsea.

The Senegalese striker, who has scored 16 goals for the Toon so far this term, is being heavily linked with the Blues ahead of next season but he has made it clear that he is content playing in the North East alongside fellow countryman Papiss Demba Cisse.

"It is rumours like you get in football," he told Sky Sports in reference to the Chelsea speculation.

"I am happy with Newcastle and I enjoy being here and playing for the Toon Army. I enjoy being in this team.

"We have a good team spirit and I love the North East, where I have my country-mate, Papiss Cisse."
