John Obi Mikel becomes latest player to move to Chinese Super League

Last updated : 06 January 2017

After Oscar recently departed Stamford Bridge to sign for Shanghai SIPG, Mikel revealed on Twitter he was heading in the same direction following a 10-year stay at Chelsea

The midfielder has failed to break into the Chelsea side under Antonio Conte this season

Mikel said in a statement: "As you will know, I haven't featured as much this season as I would have liked, and at 29 I still have many years in the game ahead of me.

"With this in mind, I feel now is the time to seek a new challenge.

"I'm delighted to be joining Tianjin TEDA FC in China, at a time that the Chinese Super League is really taking off, and I look forward to helping Tianjin TEDA FC continue to grow both on and off the pitch in the next few years."
