Marko Arnautovic touches down in China following £23m move

Marko Arnautovic has touched down in China
following his move from West Ham to Chinese Super League
club Shanghai SIPG.
The Austrian's acrimonious exit from the London club was confirmed on Monday in a 45-word statement on the Hammers
' website after he signed for a cut-price £23million.
And his new club welcomed him at the airport on Wednesday as fans clamoured to get a glimpse of their new signing. 
'Marko Arnautovic arrives at the Shanghai Pudong Airport,' Shanghai SIPG wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of him arriving. 'Warm welcome from the SIPG fans.'
Frustrated London Stadium boss Manuel Pellegrini had run out of patience with Arnautovic after he asked to leave for a second time in just six months. 
Arnautovic first wanted out following interest from China in January but was persuaded to stay and sign a new £120,000-per-week contract.
But he asked to leave again last week and this time Pellegrini chose not to stand in his way due to fears about the negative influence Arnautovic could become if he was forced to stay again.
Arnautovic will now form part of a dangerous three-pronged attack which includes Brazilian duo Oscar and Hulk.
