China's Hao to join Schalke

Chinese national team winger Hao Jumin is to join Schalke in the German Bundesliga, his Chinese club said.
Tianjin Teda said it has agreed to transfer the 22-year-old to Schalke. The official Xinhua News Agency said Hao will sign a four-year contract, but no other details were given.
Hao will become the third Chinese player to play at the highest level in Germany. Yang Chen played for Eintracht Frankfurt from 1998 to 2002, and Shao Jiayi joined 1860 Munich in 2002 and then moved to Energie Cottbus four years later.
Hao, who has scored five times in 26 national team appearances, also had a trial with Premier League side Chelsea. He scored for China against Germany in a 1-1 draw in an international friendly last May.
