Chinese Soccer Player Li Tie to Join Chengdu Blades

Overseas Chinese soccer player Li Tie will soon take the field for the Chengdu Blades, a club of China's Super League.

Li said he hopes his role in the league will prove his value and hasten his return to England, where he is currently on the roster for English Premiership team Sheffield United.

In 2005, Li signed a two-year contract with Sheffield United. Due to the injuries, however, he has had little chance to play with his team in the Premiership matches, so the club put him up for sale in May 2007.

Li is currently practicing for an upcoming season with the Blades, who have propelled themselves into the Chinese Super League following their 2007 season in China's first division.

The 30-year-old soccer player arrived in Chengdu last week and began training in Maojiawan on Monday, xinhuanet.com reported.

Club officials said on Tuesday that the details for the contract between the Chengdu Blades Football Club and Li Tie will be determined when the club chairman Xu Hongtao returns from England.
