Reports this morning are that Obafemi Martins has been transferred to Chinese Super League club Shanghai Shenhua.

Funny how after Fredy Montero left to Tianjin earlier this year, our top two goal scorers in MLS history both play in China now.

I guess this deal isn't final yet... I hope he stays. We won't find a great DP right off the bat.

Stayed longer here than he usually does at his previous clubs. I guess there's that.

I was seriously disappointed by this, but I can at least understand it. Oba was a huge favorite of mine and I'll be sad to see him leave. The big question I have is how well do we move on from him?
