All Whites striker Chris Killen has joined Chinese Super League soccer club Shenzhen Ruby, according to the club's website.

The website said Killen, 28, linked up with the club last Saturday.

He was pictured training with the side along with fellow All White Ivan Vicelich, who signed a four-month deal with the southern Chinese club this month.

Killen, who started all three matches for the All Whites at the World Cup in South Africa last month, was recently released by English Championship club Middlesbrough.

He had hoped to attract the interest of a new club through his performances for the All Whites.

All Whites frontman Shane Smeltz pulled out of deal with Chinese Super League club Shangdong after just five days last week to return to A-League side Gold Coast United.

Killen is no stranger to China after playing in the 2008 Olympics in Beijing as one of three over-age players in the New Zealand side.
