Shanghai Shenhua sign Obafemi Martins

Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua have completed the signing of Nigerian striker Obafemi Martins from Seattle Sounders, according to BBC Sport.

The Nigerian has reportedly agreed a multi-million dollar contract with the Chinese giants, thus becoming yet another high-profile footballer to move to China this winter.

The 31-year-old has spent last three years in Major League Soccer, making a total of 80 appearances for Seattle Sounders and scoring 40 goals in the process.

Martins had previously represented the likes of Inter Milan, Newcastle United, Wolfsburg, Rubin Kazan, Birmingham and Levante, and has now secured a lucrative deal with the Chinese Super League side.

The highly rated forward recently ended his exile from the Nigeria national team, making substitute appearances in the 2018 World Cup qualifying double header vs Swaziland.
