Tottenham and Swansea target Christian Benitez has joined Qatari club El Jaish SC from Club America in a deal worth approximately $15m (£10m).
The Mexican champions confirmed the deal via their twitter account and tweeted a picture of the 27-year-old with an El Jaish shirt.
Former Birmingham City striker Benitez – nicknamed ‘Chucho’ – enjoyed a stunning season, scoring 30 goals as Club America claimed the Clausura.
The Daily Mirror reported on Thursday that the Ecuador interational striker had been given permission to speak to other clubs about a summer switch, with Spurs and Swansea believed to be ready to make a move.
The north London outfit are in the market for a new striker after disappointing seasons for both Emmanuel Adebayor and Jermain Defoe, while Swansea have also been linked with a new forward this summer.
