Anthony Modeste won’t be sold to Chinese Super League club

Scoring 17 goals for Cologne this season is some feat for Anthony Modeste, whilst his performances have attracted the interest of some top clubs, namely from China.

Subject to a €40 million bid from the Chinese Super League, Cologne don’t want to get rid of their star player as they chase a place in next season’s European competitions.

“Our stance is clear. We won’t jeopardise our sporting goals because of a transfer, even though it’s about a lot of money. We’ve already said that to the [Chinese] club and all advisers in this matter,” said sporting director Jörg Schmadtke told Kicker.
