Prior to his switch to China, the Nigeria international spent over a decade at Stamford Bridge racking up three hundred and seventy-four games in all competitions, scoring six goals.

During his time with the Blues he won two Premier League titles, three FA Cups, the League Cup, the Europa League and the Champions League.

He has so far been capped eighty-five times by his country, scoring six goals while with them he won the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations and was also named in the team of the tournament.

Middlesbrough host Newport County in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Saturday afternoon, with the home win priced at 1/3.
