Brazilian midfielder Jadson eyes China move


Rio de Janeiro: Corinthians midfielder Jadson is set to join Chinese Super League club Jiangsu Sainty with the Nanjing-based football club prepared to pay his five-million-euro buy out fee, reports Xinhua.

It is understood the transfer could go ahead even without the consensus of Corinthians coach Tite, who is keen for the 31-year-old to stay.

Jadson has been in impressive form since regaining his place in Corinthians’ first-team last month. The former Shakhtar Donetsk playmaker was his team’s standout player in their 2-0 Copa Libertadores victory against Sao Paulo last week. He is contracted with the Corinthians until December.
