Xinhua,December 23, 2017 Adjust font size:

RIO DE JANEIRO, Dec. 22 (Xinhua) -- Former Manchester City and Jiangsu Suning striker Jo has agreed to join Japanese club Nagoya Grampus from Corinthians, Brazilian media reported on Friday.

Jo will undergo a medical in Sao Paulo after Corinthians agreed to a 11 million-euro transfer fee, according to the Folha de S.Paulo newspaper.

The 30-year-old Brazilian, who joined Corinthians from Jiangsu Suning in November 2016, enjoyed a prolific 2017 with 25 goals across all competitions.

Earlier this month he won the Bola de Ouro, awarded to the best player in Brazil's Serie A championship.

Nagoya Grampus earned promotion to Japan's top division this year by finishing third in the J2 league. Enditem
