On this day - 25 May

Anniversary

Name: Demba Ba
Born: Sevres, France, 25 May 1985
Clubs: Rouen, Mouscron, Hoffenheim, West Ham United, Newcastle United, Chelsea
International: Senegal - 17 caps, 4 goals

Chelsea striker and former Hammer Demba Ba celebrates his 28th birthday today.

West Ham was French-born Senegal international Ba's first destination in England following spells with Rouen, Mouscron and Hoffenheim.

He netted seven goals in 13 games for the Club, but ultimately could not prevent them from being relegated to the Championship.

Ba moved on to Newcastle, and a successful season-and-a-half on Tyneside earned a transfer to Chelsea in January 2013.

He has been capped 17 times by Senegal, and was part of their squad for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations.
