Nigeria international, Aaron Olanare Samuel has joined Chinese League One side, Changchun Yatai, on a 3-year deal reports.

The former Guangzhou R & F forward moved from Sichuan Longfor where he scored 19 times in 27 appearances last season and was signed up to help work out a return for Changchun Yatai to the Super League having been relegated in the 2018 season.

Changchun Yatai certainly will fancy another good buy, having signed another Nigerian Odion Ighalo from Watford in 2017. Ighalo who is now with Manchester United on loan from Shanghai Shenhua, during his time at Changchun scored 36 times in 55 appearances.

Samuel comes with plenty of experience in Chinese football having played top-flight football between 2014 to 2017, featuring 34 times and scoring 15 goals for Guangzhou R&F.
