The Daily Mirror certainly has Aston Villa fans displaying fixated stares here in the Football Transfer Tavern this evening as they claim that Demba Ba is on their January wishlist.
The former Chelsea forward is currently plying his trade in Turkey for Besiktas and whilst the club would be reluctant to see him leave so soon, Villa aren’t ready to give up on their man despite registering a bid to no avail thus far.
That is not exactly a shock given they are desperate for goals and Ba has proven during his time in the Premier League with Newcastle United and Chelsea that despite limited playing time, he can put the ball into the back of the net and save his team when required.
We would love to see the Senegalese forward return to English shores and it seems that Hull City and Steve Bruce also have their eye on him.
Our resident Villains are absolutely desperate for the move to go through with Paul Lambert’s side failing miserably in front of goal this term.
If signed, he would join Carles Gil at Villa Park with the Spaniard having scored a pearler on his full debut against AFC Bournemouth in the FA Cup recently.
Villa fans. If Demba Ba was signed before Monday’s deadline, would you be relatively happy with Paul Lambert’s winter transfer activity? Let us know your thoughts below.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
