Mikel Obi has cancelled his contract with Chinese club, Tianjin Teda, a year before the agreement between club and player was due to run out.
The Super Eagles captain is seeking a return to Europe for family reasons.
In an interview with Tianjin TV Sports New Vision program, Mikel said:
“I broke the contract with the club, which means I will leave Teda. As for my next stop, I am not sure yet, maybe I will return to Europe, maybe stay in China. Anyway, I would like to wish the TEDA team good luck next season.”
