3) Demba Ba to Newcastle United
The Senegalese striker is known for the goal he scored at Anfield in ’13-14 season punishing Gerrard for his slip thus all but ending Liverpool’s chase for a first league title in over twenty years. After an impressive season with Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga, Ba was a wanted man; however, his knee was a concern. Stoke pulled out of a move and Ba joined West Ham. Unfortunately, for the Hammers, they were relegated that season and Ba left the club to join Newcastle for free. The move did Ba world of good as he scored more than 25 goals in just 54 appearances before joining Chelsea.
