Shakhtar boss Lucescu: Teixeira set for China move


Shakhtar Donetsk star Alex Teixeira is set to become the latest player to move to China, coach Mircea Lucescu confirmed.

Teixeira was heavily linked with a move to Liverpool during the January transfer window, but the Premier League club were unwilling to meet the Ukrainian club's asking price.

Instead, the 26-year-old appears likely to join Jiangsu Suning in a EUR50million move.

"We agreed the sale of Alex Teixeira to China, but we will wait a bit to give as finalised because of the situation of [Luiz] Adriano," Lucescu told ESPN.

"But is close from our side, yes."
