St Étienne duo Ole Selnaes & Cheikh M’Bengue set to undergo FC Shenzhen medicals

Le Progrès and France Football understand that St Étienne central midfielder Ole Selnaes and full-back Cheikh M’Bengue have today travelled to China to undergo medicals with Chinese Super League side FC Shenzhen.

The 24-year-old Norwegian put pressure on St Étienne representatives over the last 2 weeks to enable him to make the move, in a 3-year deal worth more around €10m, which will make the standout midfielder the highest paid Norwegian footballer in the history of the game.

M’Bengue is expected to be included in the deal as a work-around to circumvent the new tax payment obligations for transfers in China over €6m.
