Former Nigerian international, Obafemi Martins, has extended his stay at Shanghai Shenhua FC of China by one season.
Martins’ one-year extension reportedly in the region of $12 million to $15 million (N4 billion).
On the pitch, Martins’ move to China hasn’t always been smooth, but it has been undeniably lucrative.
Martins joined Shanghai Shenhua last February and was due to make about $6.6 million on a nine-moth deal.
But he got off to a slow start, going scoreless in his first seven appearances and having just one goal through 11 matches, while mostly coming off the bench.
After a season-ending injury to Demba Ba, however, Martins was suddenly starting and scoring.
In the 11 games since Ba’s injury, he has scored six goals in nine games and has helped Shanghai move to fourth in the China Super League table.
