Senegal manager Amara Traore has named his 23-man squad for next month's African Cup of Nations.

The Senegalese take on Guinea, Zambia and Libya in Group A in the tournament, to be held in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea which kicks off on January 21, and will go in with a fairly strong squad which includes Newcastle United goal machine Demba Ba and Lille striker Moussa Sow.

QPR left-back Adama Traore, Wigan Athletic midfielder Mohamed Diame and Birmingham City's Guirane N'Daw are the other English-based players to join Ba in the squad.
