Since leaving Sunderland in 2012, the striker spent three years at UAE club Al Ain where he earned just under £200k a week and scored an impressive 123 goals in 120 appearances.

He then earned another big-money move to the Chinese Super League, spending the 2015 and 2016 seasons at Shanghai SIPG befiore returning to the UAE with Shabab Al-Ahli Dubai.

But things have come crashing down to the earth since he moved to Turkey last year.
