Ahly's Gabonese striker Malick Evouna completed his move to Tianjin Teda on Monday when he signed a three-and-a-half-year deal with the Chinese side.

The 23-year-old underwent a medical test ahead of signing the lucrative deal.

Having already agreed on personal terms with the player on a contract worth $2 million a year, the Chinese outfit tabled $8 million to lure the international striker from Ahly.

Ahly are now on the lookout for a frontline replacement.

Evouna joined Ahly from Wydad Casablanca of Morocco last summer in a record transfer fee of $2.5 million, the most expensive in Egyptian football history.

The international striker made a slow start but then proved his worth with some convincing displays, scoring 12 goals in the domestic league, helping the Red Devils regain the league title.
