The 35-year-old joined Wuhan on a free transfer after his mouth watering contract with Shanghai Shenhua, that started in February, was terminated last week.

Reports in China claim Shanghai was not happy with Obafemi’s performances and had to let him go.

Martins recently just returned from a long term injury which ruled him out of action since 2018.

He rejoined Shanghai Shenhua who let him go in 2018 but only played four games before he was dropped again.

Martins is now towards the end of his career and has played for some top sides such as Reggiana, Inter Milan, Newcastle United, VfL Wolfsburg, Rubin Kazan, Birmingham City, Levante, Seattle Sounders FC and Shanghai Shenhua.

Wuhan are currently fourth in the CSL Group B table with 16 points from 11 games. Martins could make his debut when they face Chongqing Dangdai Lifan in their next game away.

Wuhan face Chongqing Dangdai Lifan in their next game and Martins should have no problem being in the starting line up. His addition to the Chinese Super League side is expected to add quality and depth to the club’s attacking option.
