Mario Suarez has left Watford for Chinese club Guizhou Hengfeng Zhicheng, according to reports in the far east.

Various outlets in China are claiming the 30-year-old has joined the Chinese Super League club, following a season on loan with La Liga side Valencia.

Suarez, who has three international caps for Spain, fell out of favour at Vicarage Road following the departure of Quique Sanchez Flores, who signed him in January 2015 from Fiorentina.

He made a total of 17 appearances for Watford following his €4million move.

Zhicheng's squad already includes former Premier League striker Nikica Jelavic and QPR midfielder Tjaronn Chery.
