Former Brazil striker Jo joins Jiangsu Suning

Rio de Janeiro, Feb 6 (IANS) Former Manchester City and Brazil striker Jo has joined Chinese football club Jiangsu Suning, according to media reports.

Jo follows his compatriots Alex Teixeira and Ramires, who have also signed with the Chinese Super League outfit in recent days, reports Xinhua.

Photographs circulating on social media on Friday showed Jo posing alongside Teixeira in a Jiangsu Suning shirt.

Jo, who has been capped 20 times for Brazil, had been contracted to Al-Shabab following his move from Brazil’s Atletico Mineiro last July.
