Mikel rules out Premier League return

Mikel rules out Premier League return”

Mikel though insists that there is no truth to those reports and he is perfectly content in China playing for Tianjin Teda.

Ironically while speculators are making permutations over the possible move of the 30 year old, Mikel whose exploits contributed in no small measure to Nigeria's qualification for Russian Federation 2018, added that he is more concerned about remaining injury free next year to enjoy the league season and by extension the world cup party.

John Obi Mikel has denied speculation that he could join Everton in the upcoming transfer window.

"I don't know from where such a rumour could come, but this story is untrue".

Jon Obi Mikel has dismissed reports that he could be set to secure a move to Everton in January, according to the Mail Online.

The Nigeria global swapped the Premier League for the Chinese Super League after over ten years with Chelsea. He is confident that the Chinese Super League is a competition on the rise, and he believes playing there will keep him fit enough to be in the World Cup next year, although he acknowledged that there is still a "sizable gap" between the CSL and the top leagues in Europe.

'The CSL lags behind the Premier League, but their level is still quite high. Before people might have thought it was slow, but now it's very quick. He won one UEFA Champions League, two Premier Leagues, four FA Cups, two Carling Cups, and one UEFA Europa League with The Blues. I have no doubt playing in this league will help me stay in shape. To play more games will be good and I hope I don't get injured.
