Ghana international Emmanuel Boateng has completed his move to Chinese Super League club Dalian Yifang.

The 22-year-old moves to China from Spanish LaLiga club Levante, less than two years after arriving in Spain from Portuguese side Moreirense.

Boateng - a forward by trade - managed just a single goal in 19 appearances across all competitions for Levante this season having failed to build on the memorable hat-trick he scored in a 5-4 win over Barcelona in May last year.

According to reports, the Chinese club paid Levante a transfer fee of €11 million, making Boateng's move the second biggest in the club's history after Jefferson Lerma swapped the Spanish outfit for Bournemouth ahead of the current campaign.

In total, Boateng scored eight goals in 48 games for the Valencia-based club.

Furthermore, former Nigeria international Sone Aluko is also set for a move to China with Beijing Renhe linked with the Reading forward as per Football London.
