Graziano Pelle leaves Southampton for Chinese side Shandong Luneng

Chinese Super League club Shandong Luneng have completed the signing of Graziano Pelle from Southampton.

Italy striker Pelle, who turns 31 this week, moves for an undisclosed fee, reported to be £13 million.

A statement on Southampton's website read: "Everyone at Southampton Football Club would like to thank Graziano for his efforts during his time at St Mary's and wish him well for the future."

Pelle, who was part of the Italy squad that reached the quarterfinals at Euro 2016, scored 30 goals in 81 appearances for Southampton after joining from Feyenoord in 2014.

Shandong, led by former Bayern Munich coach Felix Magath, also signed Papiss Cisse from Newcastle United earlier this month.
