Mikel joins Tainjin TEDA, who finished 11th in the Chinese Super League last season, on a free transfer as his contract with Chelsea was due to expire at the end of the season.
During his time at Chelsea, Mikel won two Premier League titles, four FA Cup trophies and the Champions League in 2012.
In his letter to fans on social media, Mikel thanks Chelsea fans for their support and claims he has played alongside ‘some of the best manager and players in the world’ at Stamford Bridge.
