Obafemi Martins joins China’s Shanghai Shenhua

Nigeria forward Obafemi Martins has dumped his MLS club to join Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua in a multi-million dollar deal.
The 31-year-old makes the switch from Seattle Sounders, where he scored 43 goals in 84 appearances for the MLS club he joined in March 2013.
According to BBC, Martins was linked with a move back to the Premier League in the January window, but British agent Tony Harris along with the player’s attorney Soroosh Abdi brokered the deal taking the Super Eagles striker to China instead.
