Tianjin Quanjian sign Junior Moraes from Dynamo Kiev on Chinese transfer deadline day

Tianjin Quanjian have brought in Brazilian striker Junior Moraes from Dynamo Kiev on Chinese transfer deadline day.

The Chinese club were linked with the likes of Diego Costa, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and Radamel Falcao but failed to get the service of them and had to settle for a more low-profile signing.

Moraes will join his compatriots Alexandre Pato, Geuvânio, Belgium midfielder Axel Witsel and South Korean midfielder Kwon Kyung-won as Tianjin Quanjian foreigners in the upcoming Chinese Super League season.

Junior Moraes, who scored 10 times in Ukraine Premier League last season, will stay at Tianjin Quanjian until June on loan contract.
