Newcastle United face Middle Eastern competition for Chelsea striker Demba Ba.

The Mirror says the Magpies are keen to seal a season-long loan for the Senegal international striker, just seven months after selling him to Chelsea for £7million after the London club activated a release clause in his contract.

Newcastle could face competition from Qatar side Al-Jaish in their bid to team Ba up with Senegal team-mate Papiss Cisse for a second time.
