Villarreal's Bakambu Becomes Most Expensive African Player As He Moves To China For N31bn

Villarreal player Cedric Bakambu has turned down a host of English  clubs to sign for Chinese Super League side Beijing Guoan and become the most expensive African player in history.
The striker was linked with moves to Newcastle, Tottenham, West Brom and West Ham.

But he has turned down those options to pen a bumper £16m (N7.6bn)-a-year contract in China's capital city.

Bakambu has already undergone his medical with the £65m (N31bn) deal set to be finalised within the next 24 hours.
Beijing Guoan have not only agreed to pay the £35m (N16.9bn) release clause for the Congolese striker, but also all the imposed tax on the star - which will total around £30m (N14bn).

The forward joined La Liga side Villarreal back in 2015 on a five-year contract and has scored 48 goals for the Spaniards in 105 matches.
