Newcastle striker Demba Ba has agreed to join Chelsea on a three-and-a-half-year contract, Sky Sports sources understand.

Chelsea officials held initial discussions with Ba's representatives earlier this week but had been unable to reach an agreement. Newcastle released a statement which read: "Newcastle United can confirm Chelsea Football Club has made an official offer for Demba Ba which has triggered the release clause in the player's contract. "The club has given the player permission to speak to Chelsea FC and therefore he will not be included in the squad for tonight's game with Everton."
