Newcastle have expressed an interest in bringing back Demba Ba on loan from Chelsea.

The Senegalese international joined the Blues from Newcastle on a three year deal in January 2013, but wasn't even named as a substitute for Chelsea's crucial Premier League fixture against Man United on Monday.

Qatar side Al-Jaish have also expressed an interest in the striker's services.
