Super Eagles’ skipper, Mikel Obi has confirmed that he has agreed to end his two-year romance with Tianjin Teda after mutually agreeing to end his contract with the club, Freekicknaija.com.ng reports.
The former Chelsea star joined Tianjin Teda in January 2017 on a three-year contract as a free agent and so his contract has been terminated with a year to spare.

“Anyway, I would like to wish the TEDA team good luck next season, as I miss the team, but still a huge fan for the Chinese side.” Mikel stated.
Mikel has featured in 31 Super League matches, scoring 3 goals (3 assists).for Tianjin Teda.
