Ashley Young backed to become next player to join Chinese Super League side
The England international has struggled for game time since Jose Mourinho's arrival in the summer, making just nine appearances for Manchester United this term.
The 31-year-old has reportedly attracted interest from the likes of West Brom and Watford, who are keen to take him on loan for the rest of the season.
But bookmakers BetStars believe Young could be the next high profile player to make a big-money move to the Far East at odds of 11/4.

The Chinese Super League has attracted a host of former Premier League talent, as well as a few other familiar faces, but how many do you recognise?
“The Manchester United winger is now 11/4 to move to China amidst rumours of interest from Shandong Luneng, with Young having seen very little playing time this season.
“The promise of big wages for the 31 year-old and a decent transfer fee means a deal could well be done in the coming days.”
Young signed for United under Sir Alex Ferguson in 2011 for £17m and has gone on to win the Premier League, FA Cup and Community Shield in 151 appearances.
