Demba Ba has confirmed that he is looking to leave Chelsea at the end of the season in search of regular first-team football.

The 28-year-old Senegal international has been limited to just two Premier League starts under new boss Jose Mourinho this term.

And the forward, whose late goal against Paris Saint-Germain sent the Blues through to the Champions League semi-finals last week, would be keen on a switch to the Ligue 1 side.

My friends Eden Hazard and Samuel Eto’o have been ­important. They told me not to give up

“I’m looking to leave Chelsea,” Ba told the Sunday People. “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.

“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 £50m bracket rather than steady ­performers costing £10m.

“But if PSG are looking for someone to play alongside Zlatan [Ibrahimovic], then I’m their man. They will win the Champions League sooner or later, and not just the one time.

“Jose Mourinho has never ­explained his decisions to me. I am honestly surprised that I have been this patient.

“Earlier in my career I would have cracked up or blown a fuse. My friends Eden Hazard and Samuel Eto’o have been ­important. They told me not to give up.”
