Chinese Super League clubs face a 100% tax on signings as their mid-season transfer window opens on Monday.

The country’s Football Association (CFA) is proposing the measure for loss-making clubs in order to try to curb the league’s extravagant spending.

Chinese clubs spent £331m during the country’s winter transfer window, which was more than their English Premier League counterparts in January.
