Ghana international Christian Atsu has moved to Saudi Arabia as he signs for Al Raed.
Atsu, 29, joins the Buraidah-based as a free agent after leaving English side Newcastle United.
The former Chelsea and FC Porto attacker becomes the second Ghana international to move to Saudi Arabia after midfielder Afriyie Acquah signed for Al Batin.
The move comes as no surprise as the former Everton and Bournemouth player had already hinted he would not play in Europe next season.
