Nicolas Anelka will leave Chelsea for Shanghai Shenhua next month on a two-year contract, according to the Chinese Super League club.

Anelka, 32, has reportedly agreed a deal worth in the region of £175,000 a week to the striker, who recently had a transfer request accepted by the Blues.

Shenhua announced on their official website that Anelka would join them when the January transfer window opens and he has also been pictured posing with the club's shirt, although his move has yet to be confirmed by Chelsea.
