Chelsea midfielder Ramires is on the verge of joining Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning, according to the Daily Mail.

The Brazilian is expected to complete the £25 million move during the January transfer window, despite signing a new four-year deal in October.

Ramires hasn’t started a Premier League game for the Blues since their 2-1 defeat to Leicester City on December 14 and has only featured once this year.

The 28-year-old was signed by the Stamford Bridge club in 2010 from Benfica for £18 million, making 242 appearances in all competitions.

He had been linked with major European clubs including PSG and Bayern Munich but it seems as though Jiangsu have won the race to sign the energetic playmaker.

The Chinese club are currently managed by former Chelsea later Dan Petrescu who joined the club in July having played for the English champions for five years.

During his six years at the club, Ramires won the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, Champions League and Europa League.

Chelsea’s number seven will probably be best remembered for his magnificent chip against Barcelona at the Nou Camp in the 2011/12 Champions League semi-final to help put his side through to the final. Unfortunately, he also picked up a yellow card which ruled him out of the final, which Chelsea ultimately won.

The goal won the club’s ‘Goal of the Year’ award whilst he also claimed the ‘Players’ Player of the Year award that season.
