Mikel terminates contract with Tianjin Teda, hints on possible destination

John Obi Mikel has affirmed his exit from Chinese Super League side Tianjin Teda after cancelling his contract with the club a year before the expiration of the agreement.
According to Transfer Markt, the midfielder became a free agent on Thursday, January 3 after agreeing a termination of his contract with Teda.
The Nigeria international, who earlier failed to travel with the first team of the club for their pre-season training in Spain, affirmed his exit in an interview with Tianjin TV Sports New Visionprogram:
”I broke the contract with the club, which means I will leave Teda. As for my next stop, I am not sure yet, maybe I will return to Europe, maybe stay in China,” Mikel said.
”Anyway, I would like to wish the TEDA team good luck next season.”
As a free agent, Mikel signed a three-year contract with Teda in January 2017. He racked up 31 appearances for the Chinese side, registering three goals and three assists.
