Torres injury stopped Ba Turkey move

Chelsea striker Demba Ba was on his way to Turkish club Trabzonspor until Blues colleague Fernando Torres suffered a knee injury against Manchester United last weekend.

Ba said he would welcome extra competition at Stamford Bridge.
Demba Ba had been destined to move to Turkey.

Trabzonspor president Ibrahim Haciosmanoglu said a seven million pound deal to sign Ba had been in place until Torres, a substitute in the 3-1 win over the faltering champions, was hurt.

After his injury, Blues manager Jose Mourinho confirmed: "The next few weeks is Demba and Samuel [Eto'o], and I hope they do well for us."

And that has left Trabzonspor needing to look elsewhere, with Haciosmanoglu telling reporters: "We had agreed terms with Demba Ba."

However, the Turkish club may still revive a move for Ba during the summer transfer window.
