Beijing Enterprises Group FC's manager Gao Hongbo made the announcement at a recent press conference.

"We are delighted with the signing of Victor, who played in the Premier League", he said.

"It's a positive development for our whole club.

"Victor hasn't trained on the pitch since the Premier League season ended, so it may take a while for him to integrate into our team. We have to be patient."

Details of the deal, which is expected to be mouth-watering, are yet to be revealed.

Victor has now joined Mikel Obi, Odion Ighalo, Brown Ideye and other Nigerians playing in China.
