Sam Allardyce is looking to bring Senegalese striker Demba Ba back to Upton Park in a season-long loan deal, according to several reports.

Ba scored seven goals in 12 games for the Hammers towards the end of the 2010/2011 season but could not prevent relegation to the Championship.

But a sensational return to the club that gave him his first chance in English football could be on the cards as Allardyce believes linking him up with the in-bound Andy Carroll would add further fire power up front.

Ba only moved to Chelsea from Newcastle in January but it is believed he will slip further down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge with Romelu Lukaku, Fernando Torres and Blues target Edison Cavani being new boss Jose Mourinho’s preferred strikers.

What do you think? Would Ba be a good signing for us? Leave your thoughts below.
