Shanghai Shenhua have signed midfielder Mohamed Sissoko from Levante.

The Mali international joins Shenhua after making 31 appearances for La Liga side Levante.

Sissoko started his career with Auxerre and went on to win La Liga, the UEFA Cup and the UEFA Super Cup with Valencia before spending two-and-a-half seasons at Liverpool, where he secured the FA Cup, Community Shield and the Super Cup.

After a three-year spell with Serie A side Juventus, Sissoko moved to Paris Saint-Germain in 2011. He was loaned to Fiorentina in January 2013 before and then left PSG by mutual consent later that year.

Sissoko made the move to Levante in January last year and will now look to help a Shenhua side that sits a disappointing 11th in the Chinese Super League.
