Former Arsenal forward Jose Antonio Reyes has revealed that he is close to moving to money-bag Chinese Super League team.

Spanish star who has represented the likes of Sevilla, Arsenal, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid during a well-traveled career, left Espanyol in the summer following the expiration of his contract.

The 34-year-old has revealed that he is heading for China, and according to reports in Spain, the attacker will link up with Obafemi Martins and  Carlos Tevez at Shanghai Shenhua, where former Chelsea midfielder Gus Poyet is in charge.

"It's almost done and I will go to play in China," Reyes told Gol TV. "There are still some minor details to resolve but the next two years I will play there."

Reyes scored four times in 23 appearances for Espanyol during the 2016-17 campaign.
