Beşiktaş president Fikret Orman has confirmed that Demba Ba is likely to have already entered talks with other clubs.
“It is likely that he has already been in talks with other clubs we will discuss the mater when he returns but nothing has been confirmed right now,” Orman told NTV Spor.
Orman also stated that the club not stand in Ba’s way should he want to leave over the transfer window.
“We could receive offers from China or elsewhere but we have no problem with him leaving,” he added.
Ba has had interest from Chinese giants Shanghai Shenhua as well as Premier League sides West Ham and West Brom.
The experienced striker recently revealed that he would consider a return to England.
“The fans in Turkey are very passionate and create a great atmosphere but it is no secret that the standard of football is of a lower quality than in England,” Ba told World Soccer.
“The way I left Chelsea was not ideal but that’s life. I am still young and I believe I have another big move left in my career. The Premier League interests me and I am keeping my options open.”
Ba previously played for Newcastle United, Chelsea and West Ham in the Premier League.
The Senegalese international played under the management of current Hammers boss Slaven Bilic last season.
The 29-year-old striker scored a career high 27 goals for Beşiktaş last season after joining the Istanbul giants from Chelsea in the summer of 2014.
