Chinese forward, Wang Jingbin, has signed for second-tier side, Gagliano Okayama, on loan from Guangzhou Evergrande.
The forward joined Guangzhou Evergrande back in 2015, but has been unable to break into the first team, which has seen him make the move down a division.
It is believed that the player wants to gain some experience with his new club, so that he can get back into the first team when he returns to Guangzhou Evergrande after this loan spell.
With the player being just 21-years-old, there’s still a lot of room for improvement for the player. He is still young and raw. This bit of experience for him could be what it takes to get him to the top level in Chinese football.
Wang Jingbin will wear number 52 at his new club.
His new club are currently 4th in the league, meaning he could end up getting promoted with them come the end of the season. If he plays his part well, he could see this team into a top six finish which would see them into the playoffs. However, an automatic promotion spot is still not out of reach, trailing the top two by just five points with 16 games remaining.
He has a tough season ahead of him, and if he can take this big chance, he could well set himself up for the future.
