Ba, who joined Newcastle from West Ham United in the summer, has been a revelation this season and has already scored 16 goals in the Premier League.
Ba, 26, is believed to have a release clause in his contract that stands at around £7 million but, although he has been linked with a number of top clubs, the Senegal international says he is enjoying life at Newcastle alongside compatriot Papiss Cisse.
Asked about a possible move to Chelsea, Ba told SkySports.com: "It is rumours, like you get in football.
"I am happy with Newcastle and I enjoy being here and playing for the Toon Army. I enjoy being in this team. We have a good team spirit and I love the North East, where I have my country-mate Papiss Cisse."
