Hyuri joins Chongqing Dangdai Lifan on loan from Atletico Mineiro

Brazilian striker Hyuri has agreed on a loan deal to play for Chinese club Chongqing Dangdai Lifan on loan from Atletico Mineiro, according to sources.

Hyuri is not a stranger to Chinese football as he’s already spent two years playing for Chinese League One side Guizhou Renhe. The 25-year-old made 53 appearances for the capital club, scoring 16 goals in his first stint in China.

Hyuri joined Atletico Minero at the start of the 2016 season but hasn’t been able to establish himself among the first team regulars, making just 13 appearances last season.

The 25-year-old is expected to play a more prominent role at his new club Chongqing Dangdai Lifan.
