Nigerian forward Brown Ideye has not been included in Olympiacos' squad for the UEFA Europa second leg round of 32 clash with Turkey's Osmalunspor amid reports that he has joined Chinese Super League club Tianjin Teda.
Though Olympiakos and Tianjin Teda are yet to confirm the move, various outlets claim Ideye signed a two-and-a half- year contract for a transfer fee of €12 million with Tianjin.
He was not in the 20-man squad named on the Olympiacos official Twitter handle for Thursday's clash.
He will be joining Super Eagles skipper John Mikel Obi who had earlier signed from Chelsea during the January transfer window.
Aside from Mikel, Ideye will be joining other Nigerian players like Obafemi Martins and Odion Ighalo in China.
An Africa Cup of Nations winner with the Super Eagles in South Africa in 2013, Ideye played for Ukrainian club Dynamo Kyiv before moving to West Brom in 2014.
He also featured for Sochaux in the French Ligue 1.
