RUMOURS: Chelsea set to lose another player to China

The 29-year-old is yet to feature under Antonio Conte so has opted to follow Oscar to the Far East, with a Tianjin TEDA medical scheduled

Chelsea are set to lose another player to China with John Obi Mikel set for a medical with Tianjin TEDA, according to the Daily Mail.

The Nigerian has not featured for Chelsea under Antonio Conte this season, revealing late last year that he will look to leave Stamford Bridge during January.

Mikel’s contract is set to expire in the summer, meaning any fee Chelsea will receive will be nominal, and has now been offered a three-year package worth around £140,000 a week by the Chinese Super League outfit.

The 29-year-old was linked with a move to Valencia, with sporting director Jesus Garcia Pitarch revealing he had met with the two-time Premier League champion, but a move to the Far East is now approaching a conclusion.
