“I think this is a very cordial and harmonious atmosphere. I am very pleased to be a player of Dalian Aerbin,” Addy said.
“I want to Dalian to achieve better results in the new season. I will put in my energy to get the best for the club.
“Also permit me to thank the chairman Li Ming for giving me the opportunity to showcase my skills.”
