London, Feb 16 (IANS) West Ham striker Nikica Jelavic has joined Chinese second-tier side Beijing Renhe, the English football club said on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old Croatian international has made one English Premier League start this season under coach, compatriot Slaven Bilic, reports Xinhua.

He follows Chelsea’s Ramires, who joined Chinese Super League (CSL) top division side Jiangsu Suning last month, while striker Jackson Martinez joined CSL champions Guangzhou Evergrande.

Jelavic signed for West Ham from Hull in August 2015, but has scored only once in the league despite making 12 substitute appearances. He has previously played for Everton and Rangers.

Beijing Renhe finished 15th in the CSL last year and was relegated to the second division.
