The Zambian international looks set to carry on his career in China.
Arsenal have been linked with Zambian defender Stoppila Sunzu, and the FC Sochaux centre-back is showing again why he would be a terrific addition this summer.
Could Stoppila Sunzu become an option for the Gunners in the summer?
Despite claiming he was on the verge of signing for Arsenal just over a year ago, Stoppila Sunzu has now agreed a move to Sochaux.
Stoppila Sunzu was once linked with Arsenal, then Reading, then Sunderland. But October 2013 has to be the weirdest month of his career so far...
Stoppila Sunzu has gone back to former club TP Mazembe; with his tail between his legs slightly no doubt.
Sunderland and Reading were thought to have outdone Arsenal in the pursuit of Zambian talent Stoppila Sunzu. Now it seems Arsenal have jumped back to the front of the queue.
