Obi Mikel is on the verge of signing for Chinese club

Chelsea midfielder eyes Ligue 1 move

Chelsea stalwart John Obi Mikel is closing in on a move to Chinese club Tianjin Teda, reports TMW.

The Nigerian is set to end his lengthy association with Chelsea by joining Tianjin Teda, who have offered him a three-year deal worth between £6.8m and £7.7m a season.

Mikel had previously been linked with a move to Valencia, whose sporting director Jesus Garcia Pitarch met the midfielder for talks in December.
