Reid was born in New Zealand and is of Maori heritage through both his parents. He moved from New Zealand to Denmark at the age of 10 with his mother and Danish stepfather. He received Danish citizenship in 2006 and signed a youth contract with SUB Sønderborg, before moving on to play youth football with Danish Superliga club FC Midtjylland and subsequently was called up for the Under-19 national team. He played for various Danish age-grade representative teams, in particular the Under-19s and Under-21s, and played in the 2009 European Under-21 Championship qualification tournament. In March 2010, Reid stated that he wanted to play for the senior New Zealand team and was included in New Zealand's 2010 World Cup squad even though New Zealand national coach Ricki Herbert had never seen him play.  Reid signed for West Ham United on 5 August 2010, on a three year contract for an undisclosed fee. Made his Premier League debut, on 14 August, in a 3-0 loss to Aston Villa at Villa Park. He scored his first goal for West Ham in the 5-1 win against Burnley in the FA Cup on 21 February 2011.

In January 2011, Ba refused to travel to Hoffenheim's training camp as he wanted to move to West Ham United. Hoffenheim announced that Ba would be punished. However, Ba claimed that Hoffenheim had assured him that he would be allowed to leave the club under the current conditions. In January 2011 a proposed move to Stoke City fell through after Ba failed a medical. He completed his move to West Ham on 28 January, signing a three-year deal that will take him until June 2014. The transfer fee was undisclosed but is dependent upon Ba's appearances for West Ham. Ba made his West Ham and Premier League debut on 6 February coming on as a 75th minute substitute for Robbie Keane in a 1–0 home defeat by Birmingham City. His first West Ham goals came on 12 February when Ba, making his full debut, scored twice for West Ham in a 3–3 draw against West Bromwich Albion.Ba scored two goals against Wigan Athletic on 15 May 2011, giving West Ham a 2–0 lead at half-time. West Ham lost 3–2 and were relegated from the Premier League. He finished as West Ham's top scorer in the Premier League with seven goals from twelve games.

 

 

On the 17th June 2011

West Ham United confirm Demba Ba has left to join Newcastle United on a free transfer, despite the club’s best efforts to keep him in east London. Ba rejected improved new contract terms – including a lucrative £5000,000 loyalty feeand significantly increased £50,000 per week wages – to invoke a relegation exit clause and walk away less than five months into his long-term contract. The striker scored seven goals in 12 league games after being given his Premier League chance at West Ham in January 2011, when other clubs were reluctant to take a risk on signing him over his knee problems.
