Club career[edit]

On 6 May 2004 he made his professional debut, coming on as a substitute in the 80th minute for Sichuan Guancheng against Qingdao Hailifeng in the Chinese FA Cup. On 27 January 2006 Sichuan Guancheng was disbanded and consequently, on 5 July, Jiang moved to Tianjin Teda.

On 5 August 2009 he joined A-League side Wellington Phoenix on a season-long loan deal after trialling with the team.[1] On 17 October 2009 he made his debut for the Phoenix as a late substitute against North Queensland Fury.[2][3] On 29 December 2009, he was released early from his loan contract with the Phoenix. He was taken back by his Chinese team after Ricki Herbert did not hold up his end of the deal and get Jiang Chen fit and give him game time

International career[edit]

Jiang has had a strong youth career playing striker for both the China U-23 football team and the China U-17 football team. On May 2007, he made his debut for the China U-23 team and has since scored 6 goals in 12 appearances.
