Demba Ba backing Besiktas move for Chelsea winger Marin

Besiktas are closing on a deal for Chelsea midfielder Marko Marin.

The Turkish giants swooped for former Chelsea striker Demba Ba last week and now want Marin.

The club's president revealed to The Sun newspaper that talks are ongoing for the 25-year-old.

"We are in talks with Marin," Fikert Orman said. "We could sign him or go for a name we haven't been linked yet."

Ba also said: "Marin called me after my transfer to Besiktas. He told me they were also interested in him and said he would like to play alongside me.

"Chelsea are probably going to loan him out again, so this is something that could happen."
