John Obi Mikel has become the latest Chelsea player to head to the Chinese Super League after announcing he is joining Tianjin TEDA.

After Oscar recently departed Stamford Bridge to sign for Shanghai SIPG, Mikel revealed on Twitter he was heading in the same direction following a 10-year stay at Chelsea.

The midfielder has failed to break into the Chelsea side under Antonio Conte this season.

The 29-year-old has reportedly been offered a three-year deal worth £140,000 a week in China.

Mikel has won one Champions League, two Premier Leagues, two League Cups and four FA Cups at Chelsea.
