Chinese club confirm Anelka signing

Shanghai Shenhua have confirmed the signing of Nicolas Anelka from Chelsea on a two-year deal reportedly worth £175,000-a-week.

Anelka will officially join the Chinese Super League side in January after snubbing interest from a number of clubs, including West Ham.

Shanghai, who finished 11th in their league last season, have also been linked with Anelka’s Blues team-mate Didier Drogba.

Anelka, 32, scored 38 Premier League goals for Chelsea, who signed the French striker from Bolton for £15m in January 2008.
