Mushekwi slammed 19 goals for Dalian Yifang – three behind Fabiano whose efforts helped Tianjin Quanjin win promotion to the Chinese Super League.

Mushekwi's club could only finish fifth and missed out on promotion in a season that ended this past weekend. However, such has been his impact in his first year that he is sure to win himself a move to the Super League next year. He is now expected to form part of the Warriors attack at the AFCON finals in Gabon.

The 29 year-old signed for the Chinese club at the end of December last year on a three year contract and was a regular for his club featuring in all of the 30 league games that they played.

“I had a blessed season here in China. It wasn’t easy, from the language to the different culture and food, but I managed. I don’t think I did as well as I was hoping to, but I thank God for this seaso," Mushekwi told Zimbabwean newspaper The Herald from his Chinese base.

"Playing all 30 games was the first of my career and I enjoyed every single moment of it. Of course, my main objective is to play in the Super League, this is my goal but we will see how that comes out.”

Mushekwi scored 40 goals in 53 starts during his time at Sundowns and has also had loan spells at KV Oostende in Belgium and Swedish club Djurgadens IF.
