Benjamin Moukandjo has played 43 times for his country and scored seven times.

Chinese Super League strugglers Jiangsu Suning have signed Cameroon international Benjamin Moukandjo from French side Lorient.

Moukandjo, 28, has signed a two-year contract to link up with former England, AC Milan and Real Madrid coach Fabio Capello.

The striker joins a club that already features Brazilian duo Ramires and Alex Teixeira as well as Colombia’s Roger Martinez.

Jiangsu are currently next-to-bottom in the standings having picked up just 10 points in the opening 16 games of the season after finishing last season as runners-up in both the league and the Chinese FA Cup.

Capello was appointed head coach last month after South Korea’s Choi Yong-soo resigned to return to FC Seoul, where he previously won the Korean league title.
