Ideye beats transfer deadline, signs for Tianjin Teda of China

By Femi Adefioye, Lagos

Chinese clubside, Tianjin Teda has completed the formalities for signing Nigeria’s international Brown Ideye before the close of the Chinese transfer window on Tuesday, February 28.

There had been concerns raised that the transfer of the former Dynamo Kiev striker will not be completed before the deadline but those fears were put to bed when his name was registered.

Ideye, who is expected to arrive in Beijing on Wednesday morning, has been handed the number 39 jersey.

To make way for the acquisition of the Super Eagle from Olympiakos, Tianjin Teda has not registered the Gabon international attacker Malick Evouna.

Meanwhile, Tianjin Teda has confirmed that Nigeria captain John Obi Mikel will wear the number ten jersey in the new season.
