Following the transfer of Leke James and Obafemi Martins, the likelihood of a third Nigerian moving to the Chinese Super League is very high with Beijing Guoan making a serious bid for the services of a Nigerian.

Beijing Guoan made a 3 million euros bid for John Chibuike who presently plays for Gaziantepspor in Turkey and according to reports source by owngoalnigeria.com, the president of his team has given approval to the move.

Chibuike we gathered should be a player of Beijing Guoan early next week and for that singular reason he might not play for the team this weekend in the Turkish Super Liga.

He joined Gaziantepspor two seasons ago from Rosenborg of Norway where he spent four season and since moving to Turkey he has scored 11 times from his midfield role in the 47 games he has played in the League.

27 year old Chibuike was tipped to move to one of the giants in Turkey but the bid of 3 million Euros was too tempting for Gaziantepspor to turn down and the financial terms on offer convinced the left foot ace to approve the switch.

Chine have had activities concerning Nigeria players in this transfer window as while Aaron Samuel sealed a move away from China, Obafemi Martins joined Shanghai Greenland Shenhua and Leke James moved to Beijing BG all in just one week.
