Future Bright for Gudjohnsen in China

The 36-year-old played last season at English second tier side Bolton Wanderers, but has now signed a deal with the mid-table Shijiazhuang Ever Bright, the Xinhua news agency reported on Friday.

Ever Bright are eighth in the standings in their first season in the Chinese top flight.

Chinese Super League clubs have flexed their financial muscle in recent days with Guangzhou Evergrande paying ??9.8million for Brazil midfielder Paulinho from Tottenham Hotspur, while Shanghai Shenhua laid out a similar fee for Senegal striker Demba Ba.
