11:56 am on 27 July 2010

The All Whites striker Chris Killen is reported to have agreed a move to play in China.

Britain's SKYSports says Killen is available on a free transfer after seeing out his contract with English club Middlesbrough.

Killen, who started all 3 of New Zealand's matches at the World Cup, has agreed a two-year deal with Shenzhen Ruby and is the club's marquee signing of the off-season.

Recently fellow All Whites striker Shane Smeltz left another Chinese club Shandong after just 5 days because of personal reasons.
