The 28-year-old has posted a picture of himself in his new colours, with a message to fans saying: “It’s done”.

Hoarau has signed a three-year deal, while his salary is a reported £3.25 million a year.

The striker had scored 38 league goals for PSG since his 2008 arrival, and represented the national team on five occasions, but had been marginalised since the Ligue 1 leaders spent heavily thanks to funds from their Qatari owners.

Hoarau played only 118 minutes in six league games this season, scoring one goal, as coach Carlo Ancelotti preferred Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Kevin Gameiro and even winger Jeremy Menez at the front.

The towering striker joined PSG in 2008 from second division Le Havre, and scored 38 goals in 114 appearances for the capital club.

Hoarau joins the likes ex-Barcelona midfielder Seydou Keita and Fabio Rochemback at Dalian Aerbin, who have risen swiftly through the leagues in China and were fifth in the top flight in 2012.

    Bell steers England to victory, hosts take 2-1 Ashes lead

    Ian Bell guided England to an eight-wicket victory over Australia in the third test at Edgbaston on Friday to put the hosts 2-1 up in the series with two matches to play. Bell (65 not out) and Joe Root, with an unbeaten 38, anchored the chase after England were set to 121 to win on the third day at Edgbaston where a dominant performance banished memories of a heavy defeat at Lord's. England lost Alastair Cook (7) and Adam Lyth (12) to set a few nerves on edge but Bell, dropped on 20 by Australia captain Michael Clarke, made his second 50 of the match to spark raucous celebrations after Root hit the winning runs.

    No snow no problem as China's financial might lands 2022 Games

    The snow will be fake, but the very real financial muscle China boasts proved decisive on Friday when Beijing won the right to host the 2022 Winter Olympics. Games officials meeting in Kuala Lumpur voted for the Chinese capital over the lure of a winter wonderland offering from Kazakhstan's Almaty, in a clear sign that the International Olympic Committee is craving solidity and security after a series of problems and headaches. While Rio scrambles to make up lost time in its building for the 2016 Olympics, and Tokyo is embroiled in a stadium drama the allure of a megacity with a cast-iron financial guarantee proved irresistible.
