Abdoulaye Ba (born 1 January 1991) is a Senegalese footballer who plays for Portuguese club Alanyaspor as a central defender on loan from Porto B.[1]

Club career[edit]

Born in Saint-Louis, Ba joined FC Porto's youth ranks in 2008, aged 17. He spent his first two seasons as a senior on loan to two other Portuguese clubs, S.C. Covilhã in the second division and Académica de Coimbra in the top level,[2] making his debut in the latter competition on 15 August 2011 in a 2–1 away win against U.D. Leiria and also playing the full 90 minutes against Sporting Clube de Portugal in the campaign's domestic cup final, which ended 1–0 for the Students.[3]

In September 2012, Porto bought back 25% of Ba's economic rights for 750,000 from investor "Pearl Design Holding Limited", with his value being estimated at €3 million at that time.[4] He made his first league appearance for the Dragons on 2 November ot that year, coming on as a substitute for injured Maicon in the first half of an eventual 5–0 home win over C.S. Marítimo.[5]

On 13 April 2013, Ba was sent off for two bookable offenses in the season's Portuguese League Cup final against S.C. Braga, the second of which also resulted in a penalty and the game's only goal, scored by Alan in the last minute of the first half.[6] On 3 September he moved to fellow league team Vitória de Guimarães, for one year.[7]

On 1 February 2014, Ba returned to Porto after appearing sparingly with the Minho side.[8] On 4 August he joined La Liga's Rayo Vallecano, also in a temporary deal;[9] in the following summer more of the same, as he moved to Fenerbahçe SK.[10]
