Ghana forward Christian Atsu has sealed a move to Saudi Arabian club Al Raed, as exclusively reported by our outfit last month.
The 29-year-old joins Al Raed on a two-year contract, becoming the second Ghanaian to move to the Asian country this transfer window.
Midfielder Afriyie Acquah was the first when he signed a juicy deal with Al Batin.
Atsu, an AFCON 2015 beat player, moved to Europe as a teenager in 2011 as he was signed by Portuguese giants FC Porto.
After two excellent years, Atsu signed a five-year contract with Chelsea worth 3.5 million euros. However, he made not a single appearance for the two-time European champions.
When he arrived, Atsu was immediately loaned to Vitesse and subsequently featured for Everton, Bournemouth, Everton and Malaga, all on loan, before his permanent transfer to Newcastle United in 2017.
Atsu departed Newcastle this summer after a torrid last season in which he failed to make a single appearance in the Premier League.
