According to a report from the Express and Star, West Brom’s forgotten striker Zhang Yuning will be leaving the club to complete a move to complete a move to an unnamed Chinese Super League club.
West Brom striker Zhang Yuning is in discussions with a Chinese Super League club over a deal which will see him leave The Hawthorns having never featured for the club.
The Chinese striker is currently on loan with Dutch Eredivisie side ADO Den Haag and his loan spell with the Dutch outfit was set to come to an end at the end of the 2018/19 season. However, it has reportedly been decided that his loan spell will be cut short in order for him to move back to his birthplace, China.
After joining the Baggies in the summer transfer window of 2017 for £6 million, Yuning was loaned out to German side Werder Bremen immediately. Despite agreeing a two-year loan deal, the striker left at the end of the first season after failing to make a single appearance for the Bundesliga side. He featured in the matchday squad just twice but never made it onto the pitch.
His spell at ADO Den Haag has provided some first-team football, but not much. He has featured six times for the club’s first-team this season, scoring none. He has played four times for the club’s Under-21s side, but scored just once.
Now, it seems set that his unsuccessful spell with West Brom will be coming to an end, with discussions ongoing over a move to China.
