Chelsea have confirmed the departure of Brazil midfielder Ramires to link up with Chinese club Jiangsu.
The Premier League champions announced the deal on their official website on Wednesday.
“Ramires has today joined Chinese Super League club Jiangsu Suning in a permanent transfer,” Chelsea wrote.
“The 28-year-old departs Stamford Bridge after five-and-a-half years as a Chelsea player, in which time he helped us lift every major domestic and European trophy.
“Arriving in the summer of 2010, the Brazilian international gradually imposed himself with his strong running and tough tackling, scoring the club’s Goal of the Season in March that season with a fine solo effort against Manchester City.”
The deal believed to be worth about £25m.
The 28-year-old Brazil midfielder agreed a new four-year deal in October but has only started seven Premier League games this season.Watch The Premier League Live!! with EXPRESSVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
