Paris - Striker Nicolas Anelka says he already knows which team he will join when he leaves Chelsea.

Anelka recently had a transfer request accepted and can leave when the transfer window reopens next month.

Speaking on his personal website, the 32-year-old Anelka said "I've known for a little while where I'll be on January 2" - but did not name the club.

Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua is reportedly among the teams keen on signing the striker.

Anelka, who joined Chelsea from Bolton in 2008, has scored only one goal this season under new coach Andre Villas-Boas.

He has been marginalised at the London club following the signing last season of Spain striker Fernando Torres and the development of young England forward Daniel Sturridge.
