West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce remains keen on Chelsea striker Demba Ba.

The Daily Star says Allardyce will revive his ­interest in Chelsea striker Ba if he fails to capture Loic Remy from QPR.

Ba insists he is determined to stay at Stamford Bridge, even if they sign Wayne Rooney from Manchester United.

But Allardyce believes he can tempt the Senegal star with the offer of regular first-team football if his bid to land Remy collapses.
