Modeste fails to seal China exit

SHANGHAI

Sep 6, 2018-

Anthony Modeste has been left in limbo after the French striker failed to secure a move away from Tianjin Quanjian during the transfer window and now faces possible legal action. The 30-year-old has not featured in the Chinese Super League (CSL) since August 4 and appears determined to quit the country, with clubs in France, Germany, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Russia all linked with him. But the transfer window in most of Europe shut on August 31 with Modeste still on Tianjin’s books, and the Frenchman has appealed to Fifa in an effort to sever ties with the club he joined in 2017 in a two-year loan deal from Cologne.
