Brown Ideye has left Chinese side Tiajin Teda for Spanish La-Liga outfit Alaves on a season long loan deal, bringing a temporary halt to his adventure in the Far East.
Ideye passed a routine medical yesterday with the La-Liga side to beat the deadline for European transfers but some documents are yet to arrive from the Chinese side, hence the reason why his move has not been made official.
The 28 year old moved to Tiajin Teda in February, but what was supposed to be a dream financial move turned out into a nightmare after a row with the coach lead to his demotion to the reserves.
His spot as a foreign player in the squad was given to Ghanaian forward Frank Acheampong who joined on loan from Belgium side Anderlecht, leaving the Nigerian with no choice than to leave.
In the past he has represented Sochaux, Dynamo Kiev, West Brom and Olympiakos from where he moved to China, and he will be hoping his move to Alaves helps him remain in the plans of the national team coach of Nigeria Gernot Rohr.
