Ex-Ranger Tommasi joins China's Tianjin

Former Italy international Damiano Tommasi has joined Tianjin Teda of the Chinese Super League, the club announced on Tuesday.

The 34-year-old midfielder reached an agreement with Tianjin during a half-day talk in Beijing on Monday, and would be formally introduced to the fans on Thursday.

Tommasi, who spent 10 years with AS Roma and played for Italy between 1998 and 2003, was a free agent since his one-year contract with English championship club Queens Park Rangers had been terminated.
