Manuel Pellegrini has been appointed by the Chinese Super League side Hebei China Fortune.

Pellegrini was replaced this summer by Pep Guardiola as manager of Manchester City.

Pellegrini is the latest high-profile manager to move to the booming Chinese Super League, joining Luis Felipe Scolari and Sven-Goran Eriksson.

Pellegrini had previously hinted his desire to remain in the Premier League.
