The fee is believed to be in the region of £25m; and with Ramires turning 29 in March, this looks to represent a good piece of business for the Premier League champions.

The Brazilian midfielder joined the Blues in 2010 for a fee of £18m and his marauding midfield displays have helped them achieve five major honours scoring 37 goals in 242 games.
His most notable goal came in the Camp Nou, when Chelsea beat Barcelona en route to Champion’s League glory that season.
The Brazilian has started for Chelsea in the Premier League since the 2-1 defeat by Leicester City in December. He also recently signed a new four-year deal in October.
However Ramires will now join a host of Brazilians in the Chinese Super League – including Paulinho who left Tottenham Hotspur for Chinese club Guangzhou Evergrande in June for £9.9m.
