Guangzhou, Jan 6 (IANS) Former Brazilian 'Most Valuable' Player Dario Conca has returned to China, putting to rest the speculations about his future.

The Argentine midefielder, who arrived here Friday night, will join his Guangzhou Evergrande teammates soon, reports Xinhua.

There will be the hatchet to be buried between the Chinese Super League champions and the player after Conca missed Evergrande's title winning celebration late last year and left with a note saying "I've gone and I'm not coming back".

Conca had already repeatedly expressed his wish to go back to Brazil to join his old club Fluminense last season but the latter seemed reluctant to pay an $8.5 million transfer fee.

Evergrande brought in Conca in a then record transfer deal of $10 million in 2011.
