Chelsea's Champions League hero Demba Ba has admitted he is looking to leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season, reports the Sunday People

Ba, who guided The Blues into the Champions League semi-final with a late goal against PSG earlier this week, has said he is looking for more regular first-team football.

The Senegalese international said: “I’m looking to leave Chelsea. I want to play the full 90 minutes, get the maximum number of games and enjoy myself. I’ve not done that very much this season, and I doubt things will change for me here."

Since the 27-year-old made the switch to Stamford Bridge from Newcastle United in January 2013, he has made 29 league appearances and scored only five goals. 

And despite three goals in four European games this season the former West Ham man has been behind Samuel Eto'o, Andre Schurrle and Fernando Torres in the pecking order. 

Although the forward scored the goal that knocked PSG out of the Champions League, Ba admitted he could see himself at the French club in the future

He said: "I could well imagine myself at PSG. That is even though they have taken on a new dimension, and seem to be looking for international stars in the £50million bracket rather than steady ­performers costing £10m.

“But if PSG are looking for someone to play alongside Zlatan, then I’m their man.

Ba was a prolific in front of goal during his time at St.James' Park, and will no doubt be on the radar of many Premier League sides should he become available in the summer.
