Super Eagles striker Brown Ideye has left Greek side Olympiakos for Chinese Super League side Tianjin Teda who also have Mikel Obi on their payroll.

Signed two years ago from English side West Bromwich Albion, Ideye has been in fine form for Olympiakos. He scored 13 goals last season as the Greek side won the league.

His 15 goals this term has seen his stock rise but Olympiakos, reeling from financial constraints have decided to cash in and sell Ideye to the Chinese side.

Olympiakos have also failed to qualify for the group stage of the Uefa Champions League which meant revenues will not be coming in as expected and they had to sell to get some money into their vaults.

The deal is worth a reported €12 million which makes Ideye the most expensive signing in Teda’s history.

The former Sochaux striker will join a growing Nigerian influx into the CSL that includes Obafemi Martins, Odion Ighalo and Anthony Ujah.
