Nicolas Anelka: Believed to have agreed a two-year contract with Chinese outfit

Skysports.com understands a deal has been agreed to take Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka to Chinese outfit Shanghai Shenhua.

Representatives of the Asian side announced earlier on Wednesday that they were hopeful of reaching an agreement for the French forward.

It was suggested that a three-year deal would be put in place, with the finer details in the process of being thrashed out.

It is understood that those talks have reached a conclusion, with terms having been agreed.

Anelka will only sign up for two years, but his arrival in Chinese football will help to raise the profile of their domestic league across the world.

A switch is set to be pushed through in January, with Chelsea having revealed that their 32-year-old striker has handed in a transfer request.

Anelka has already turned out in France, England, Spain and Turkey, but appears to be all set to continue his career outside of Europe.
