Former Newcastle United star Demba Ba has just completed a move to İstanbul Başakşehir – joining ex-Mag Emre, Brazilian winger Robinho and former Arsenal duo Adebayor and Clichy at the Turkish side.
Not only is their squad now looking like a reunion of ex-Premier League stars who many may be surprise to hear are still playing, but his unveiling video is something else.
Here’s how Başakşehir announced his signing – just moments after posting a picture of Ba with an Owl mask over his head!:
This is actually Ba’s third spell in Turkey following his move away from St James’ Park six years ago, with him also having spells with Besiktas and Goztepe; a club which also have Yoan Gouffran on their books.
He may be 33, but he’s still scoring goals in his 30’s. He’s bagged a grand total of 68 goals across his last three full seasons, suggesting there’s still life in the Senegalese striker despite him being on the receiving end of some horrific injuries over the years.
Good luck Demba!
