Nigeria forward Leke James has said Beijing BG new signing Cheick Tiote's experience of playing in the English Premier League will be great for his Chinese club.
Tiote, who played for Newcastle United in the EPL, joined the Chinese team during the winter transfer window.
"It feels good to have an African brother in the house,” said James.
"And I think he will bring a positive energy into the team with his EPL experience and this will help the team."
The second-tier league club failed to win promotion to the Chinese Super League last year.
