Former CSKA Moscow forward Sekou Oliseh has joined the bandwagon of players leaving Europe for the Far East by teaming up with Chinese Super League side DL Yifang from Romanian side AFC Astra Giurgiu.

26 year old Oliseh is the adopted son of Churchill Oliseh, the elder brother to erstwhile Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh who took him as a son years ago when he arrived Nigeria as a refugee.

Now a full blown Liberia international he started his European career in Denmark with FC Midtylland before signing a five year deal with Russian giant CSKA Moscow where he failed to break into the main team and had two loan spells before he was sold to PAOK of Greece.

He returned back to Russia and played just 12 games for Kuban Krasnordar where he scored four goals to take his goals tally since moving to Europe seven years ago to 12.
