Dalian Yifang forward Nyasha Mushekwi has been notified by the club that he is not in their plans for the new season, according to Marca, a Spanish sports newspaper.
The 30-year-old striker has been heavily linked with a return to Swedish club Djurgården and with the arrival of Yannick Carrasco and Nicolas Gaitan – both forwards – from Atletico Madrid at the Chines side, the move is now imminent.
The Chines league only allows a maximum of four foreign players, and before the recent signings, there was only one spot available.
Meanwhile, Djurgården director of sports Bosse Andersson told Fotbollskanalen, a Swedish football website that Mushekwi has strong feelings for the club.
“Nyasha had a very good time here at Djurgården, and that made him become a professional in China. He was here before and has strong feelings with the club,” said Andersson.
Mushekwi once had a flourishing spell with Djurgården two seasons ago where he scored twelve goals and made three assists in 21 matches.
