Shanghai: Star striker Didier Drogba's Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua expressed outrage over his move to Turkish side Galatasaray on Wednesday, saying it breached his current contract and he was still their player.

Galatasaray and Drogba himself announced earlier this week that the Ivory Coast star had signed for the Turkish league leaders, apparently ending a two-and-a-half year deal with the Chinese Super League side.

"Currently, Drogba is still a player of the Shanghai Shenhua Football Club, and the contract between both parties is still within the term of validity," Shenhua said in a statement on its website.
