What's with Chinese clubs and foreign players? Nigeria and BlackRovern striker, Yakubu Aiyegbeni is the latest catch.

Chinese Super League club Guangzhou R&F I heard would pay him an annual sum of $7.6m.

The deal which began about two months ago is almost completed. "The job is 99 percent done. If nothing goes wrong with the final one percent, Yakubu will arrive at Guangzhou this week." Lu Yi, the club's Vice President revealed.

Its all about the cash too. Players who have been lured to China with big pay packets include French striker Nicolas Anelka who joined Shanghai Shenhua, and Ivory Coast's Didier Drogba who is yet to move.
