RIO DE JANEIRO - Chinese Super League side Dalian Shide has signed Gremio's star midfielder Fabio Rochemback, the Brazilian soccer club said on Wednesday.

The 30-year-old is expected to travel to China within the next week in order to undergo a routine physical before inking his contract.

Rochemback was Gremio's team captain throughout the 2011 season, but struggled to find a position on the starting team in 2012.

Gremio's head coach Caio Junior said that all three parties benefited from the deal.
