Not really a football fan but if the European teams don't bid for him or can't afford him then he'll go to where they can and he does need playing time. Gareth doesn't seem a stupid person so he'll have no doubt thought of pros and cons before hand. Might now mean CWL gets some private jet flights from China!
What are we to make of the growing exodus from Europe to China? Obviously I can't read Gareth's mind but I've heard many armchair commentators accuse him of greed and/or laziness.
He won't be playing at a high level in China so competitive international matches with Wales might be a test if he is not match-fit for that standard of football.Not really a football fan but if the European teams don't bid for him or can't afford him then he'll go to where they can and he does need playing time.

It's a new law of the game this season. If a goal is scored after accidentally touching an attacker's hand or arm the 'goal' will be disallowed (if it was deliberate it would always have been ruled out). Below is the new law relating to handball (Law 12).I don't follow the development of the rules of the game that closely, so Manchester City's disallowed goal against Tottenham yesterday was the first time I recall seeing the accidental handball rule spelled out.
Lots of people complaining that it violates the "spirit of the game", but I suppose that depends whether one takes the fans' viewpoint or the referees' viewpoint.
Clearly the alternative to ruling out all use of the arm/hand is to let the referee interpret whether the touch was deliberate (and he can't usually rely on the players for that!).
But under the old laws a referee who had given a series of decisions in favour of one team might feel under pressure to redress the balance by "interpreting" the handball replay in favour of the other, whereas the new rule removes the possibility of that.
Football finances are a mess. Without the massive tv deals Premier League clubs would be struggling too.A sad day for the EFL and things could get worse in two weeks time.
Kosovo played the first half either naively or adventurously, perhaps a combination of both. That left so many gaps in their defence that England were able to score almost at will with their jet-propelled movements up field.Always enjoyable to see a school playground score in an international.
I don't think Southgate will be pick the same defence for Euro 2020, though
