Chinese Super League side Tianjin Teda have exercised their first option on Ghana midfielder Frank Acheampong and handed him a permanent two-year contract, GHANASoccernet.com can exclusively reveal.
Acheampong leaves Belgian side Anderlecht after hugely impressing on a short term loan in the Chinese top-flight.
The 24-year-old scored four goals in 12 league matches as Tianjin Teda survived demotion.
Tianjin were reported to have paid US$ 3 million for securing the Ghana international on loan.
Acheampong spent three-and-a-half seasons at Anderlecht and makes a return to Asia after a successful stint with Thai-side Buriram United.
