Newcastle striker Ba to join Chelsea with £2M payoff
Newcastle United striker Demba Ba is set to join Chelsea with an extra £2 million in his bank account. The Daily Mail says Ba will be paid a £2million loyalty bonus by Newcastle United as he prepares to complete a dream move to Chelsea.
Ba's agents staged talks with Chelsea last night and the European champions are expected to trigger his £7m January 1 release clause tomorrow.
Due to issues with one of his knees, Ba agreed to a basic weekly salary at Newcastle of £20,000 with another £20,000 bolted on top for appearances.
