Reinaldo joins Beijing Guoan as Griffiths replacement

Former Brisbane Roar striker Reinaldo has landed a lucrative move to Chinese club Beijing Guoan.

The Brazilian has been brought in as replacement for Australian attacker Joel Griffiths who has left for Shanghai Shenhua where he will partner ex-Chelsea star Nicolas Anelka.

27-year old Reinaldo left the Roar for Qatari outfit Al Wakra last year and after a short stint there joinedSaudi Arabia's Al Raed before now moving onto Beijing where he is tipped to succeed.

"We finalised the deal a couple of days ago, and Reinaldo should be meeting up with the team in Portugal for pre season training in the next few days," said Steve Panopoulos, who brokered the deal.

"This is a great opportunity for Reinaldo to play one of the most traditional Chinese clubs, with a massive fan base, and also competing in the Asian Champions League."
