BREAKING: ANTHONY UJAH SET TO JOIN CHINESE SIDE LIAONING HONGYUN

Anthony Ujah will reportedly move to Chinese side Liaoning Hongyun from Werder Bremen of Germany according to reports coming from the German media.

During the winter transfer window in January Werder Bremen reportedly turned down a bid of around 13 million Euros for the forward who only joined them last summer but this time around they have given their approval for his sale.

Liaoning Hongyun have reportedly reached an agreement with Cologne for the transfer of the 25 year old Nigerian for a fee in the region of 10.5 million Euros .

Werder Bremen will make a profit of around 8.5 million Euros on Ujah just a year after buying him for 4.5 million Euros from Cologne.

Last season Ujah played second fiddle to Claudio Pizzaro,Aaron Johannsson and sometimes even youngster Johannes Eggestein is preferred ahead of him in the front line of Werder Bremen.

He however scored 11 goals last season, one more than his tally for FC Cologne that convinced Werder Bremen to sign him last summer.
