Gervinho has left Serie side Roma to join Chinese Super League new-boys Hebei Fortune in a deal reported to be worth around 18million euros.

The former Arsenal forward, who has scored six goals for the Italian club this season, had been linked with a switch to Jiangsu Suning.

But the 28-year-old has now been pictured holding the shirt of newly-promoted Hebei Fortune, who were only formed in 2010.
