“I broke the contract with the club, which means I will leave Teda. As for my next stop, I am not sure yet, maybe I will return to Europe, maybe stay in China.

“Anyway, I would like to wish the TEDA team good luck next season.”

The central midfielder cum defender played his last game for Tianjin Teda in October 2018 helping the side to a 4-2 win over Shanghai Shenhua.

All through his stay in China, Mikel featured in 31 Super League matches, scoring 3 goals and had 3 assists.

Turkish SuperLig side Fenerbahce are said to be heavily interested in the midfielder.
