M'bia set to follow Gervinho to Hebei


Cameroon captain Stephane M'Bia is set to become the latest player to move to China this month, after announcing he has joined Hebei China Fortune.

The Super League has proven to be the top-spending major league so far in January after a number of high-profile transfers were completed within the last week.

Ramires left Chelsea for Jiangsu Suning for a reported EUR25million fee, Fredy Guarin swapped Inter for Shanghai Shenhua and Roma forward Gervinho moved to Hebei for EUR18m, while Elkeson transferred within China, from Guangzhou Evergrande Taobao for Shanghai SIPG.

M'Bia now looks set to join Gervinho in moving to Li Tie's side, posting on his official Twitter account: "Proud to join Hebei China Fortune. Ready for this adventure. Let's go."

Trabzonspor confirmed on Friday via their official Twitter account that negotiations between M'Bia and Hebei were underway, though they have yet to announce his exit officially.

The 29-year-old made 18 appearances for Trabzonspor this season after moving from Sevilla, where he won back-to-back Europa League titles.
