Mikel Obi Rules Out English Premier League Return

Mikel Obi has revealed he won’t return to English Premier League but stay with his Chinese Super League team Tianjin Teda.

The Super Eagles captain has been linked with a move to Everton but has described the reports as fake.

“I don’t know from where such a rumour could come, but this story is untrue,” the former Chelsea man told Tianjin TV.

“I want to stay in the CSL and play for [Tianjin] TEDA. I’m sure there will be lots of speculation about me as the transfer window nears but it is a false rumour

“The CSL lags behind the Premier League, but their level is still quite high. I believe more matches will help me get in shape for the 2018 World Cup.

“I just hope to stay injury-free next year and have an amazing season with TEDA.”
