Further fueling the rumour, the striker was not included in Olympiacos’ squad for their Europa League second leg round of 32 clash with Turkey's Osmalunspor.

Ideye is reportedly set to put pen to paper on a two-and-a-half- year contract for a transfer fee of €12 million with Tianjin.

If he eventually signs for the Chinese Super League side, he will be joining his Super Eagles teammate and captain John Mikel Obi.
