BEIJING (AP) -- Shanghai Shenhua says it has signed Colombia midfielder Giovanni Moreno, five days after bringing Didier Drogba to the Chinese club.

A brief statement on the club's website Monday says the 25-year-old Moreno has signed for two years with an option for two more. It gave no salary details and did not say when he would arrive in Shanghai. Moreno joins Shenhua after a season with Argentine side Racing Club.

Shenhua has been spending prodigiously on foreign players. In recent months it has added former Argentina coach Sergio Batista and Drogba's former Chelsea teammate, Nicolas Anelka.

Drogba signed with Shanghai Shenhua on a two-year contract last Wednesday.
