John Obi Mikel has moved to Chinese side Tianjin TEDA after spending 10-and-a-half years with Chelsea in which he won every major club honor.
Mikel made 372 appearances for Chelsea, where he won 11 trophies, including two Premier League titles and the 2012 Champions League. However, the former Nigerian international had not been included in a single matchday squad since Antonio Conte took over this summer. Mikel, who contract was also due to experience in the summer, announced that he would be moving to China on Twitter this Friday. Mikel wrote: "I feel now is the time to seek a new challenge. I'm delighted to be joining Tianjin TEDA FC in China, at a time that the Chinese Super League is really taking off, and I look forward to helping Tianjin TEDA FC continue to grow both on and off the pitch in the next few years."
