Chelsea midfielder Ramires is close to a move to Chinese side Jiangsu Suning.

The 28-year-old, signed from Benfica for about £17m in 2010, is expected to join the Super League side for a fee which could reach £25m.

Ramires signed a new four-year deal in October 2015 but has only started seven Premier League games in a campaign in which the Blues have struggled.

Jiangsu finished ninth in China’s top tier in 2015 and are managed by former Blues defender Dan Petrescu.

They also won the Chinese Cup in 2015 – the biggest honour in their history.

In his time at Stamford Bridge, Ramires has won the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, Champions League and Europa League
