- Story Text:Australian media are reporting on Wednesday (January 18) that both Robbie Kruse, currently with Bayer Leverkusen, and James Holland of Adelaide United, have signed to play for the Chinese Super League (CSL), quoting the players' agent Ante Alilovic.
Alilovic has posted a photograph on his Twitter feed (@entourage_ante) apparently showing both players in the boardroom of Liaoning Whowin after the signing.
Negotiations were hampered by a ruling by Chinese Football Association to change the CSL rules on the signing of foreign players.
Alilovic tweeted that the signings had been completed but the players' clubs have yet to confirm this.
