Ni hao Anelka


Nicolas Anelka poses with a Shanghai Shenhua shirt after it was confirmed the 32 year old Frenchman will move to the Chinese club from Chelsea in the January transfer window.

Anelka scored 59 goals for Chelsea since arriving from Bolton Wanderers in January 2008 but recently has fallen out of favour with boss Andre Villas Boas and last week had his transfer request accepted.

The striker is to sign a two-year deal for the Shanghai club – no financial details were given.

The Ambitious Chinese outfit, who finished a lowly 11th in the league last season, have also been linked with manager Jean Tigana as well as Anelka’s Chelsea team-mate Didier Drogba.
