ISTANBUL (AP) - Turkish club Besiktas says it has finalized a deal with Chelsea for Senegalese striker Demba Ba’s move to Istanbul.

Besiktas said on Friday it would pay Chelsea 6 million euros ($8.1 million) in five installments until 2016, under the deal.

Ba, who agreed to a four-year contract, will get 2.5 million euros per season and an additional 10,000 euros per game.

The striker underwent a medical in Istanbul this week, and immediately joined his new teammates at a training camp in Leeds, England.

Ba failed to establish himself at Chelsea after productive spells at Hoffenheim and Newcastle.
