Former Hibs forward Derek Riordan joins Shaanxi Chanba

Free agent Derek Riordan has signed a two-year deal with Chinese side Shaanxi Chanba after leaving Hibernian.

The forward decided to swap Easter Road for the Far East after failing to agree a new deal with the Leith club.

Riordan had been the subject of interest from Houston Dynamo and was also linked with Crystal Palace.

The 28-year-old has been capped three times for Scotland and spent two years at Celtic in between his two spells with Hibs.
