Official | Benjamin Moukandjo quits FC Lorient for China in €5.5m move

Despite links to English sides Crystal Palace and Birmingham City, Lorient striker Benjamin Moukandjo has made the switch to Chinese Super League outfit Jiangsu Suning for €5.5m.

With just a year left on his Lorient contract, the Cameroon captain’s future in France was certainly in doubt, and now it has been sealed.

Inter Milan director Walter Sabatini, who oversees the business for both clubs owned by the ‘Suning’ group is said to have negotiated the deal for the in-demand striker.

Moukandjo stood out in a relegated Lorient side last term, scoring 13 times in 25 league appearances.
