Yang Xu (simplified Chinese: 杨旭; traditional Chinese: 楊旭; pinyin: Yáng Xù; born 12 February 1987) is a Chinese footballer who currently plays for Shandong Luneng in the Chinese Super League.

Club career[edit]

Yang Xu started his football career when he made his debut for Liaoning Whowin on 16 April 2005 in a 1-0 loss against Shanghai Shenhua.[1] He scored his first goal for the club on 5 May 2005 in a 3-1 win against Shenzhen Jianlibao.[2] By the end of the 2005 season, Yang scored three league goals in 11 appearances and saw his club finish in a tenth-place position. The following season would see Yang continue to establish himself with the squad by making a further 20 league appearances and scoring three goals; however, most of his appearances came from the bench.[3] By the 2008 season, he was still a squad player trying to establish himself as the main striker within the team; however, he was unable to help Liaoning avoid relegation at the end of the season. Staying with the club, Yang was promoted to first-choice striker at the start of the 2009 league season and he would repay them with 15 league goals in 22 appearances, making him the second best goalscorer in the league.[4] His goals would aid Liaoning to win the division title and immediate promotion back to the top flight.

On 27 February 2013, Yang transferred to fellow Chinese Super League side Shandong Luneng. After failing to settle in with the club, Yang was loaned out to Changchun Yatai in July 2014 for the rest of the 2014 season.

International career[edit]

After an impressive start to the 2009 season, Yang was called up to the Chinese national team despite playing for a second tier side. He would be tried out in several friendlies before he was given his chance to play in a qualifying match for the AFC Asian Cup in a 2-1 win against Vietnam on 17 January 2010 where he also scored his debut goal.[5] On 30 March 2011, he scored twice in a 3-0 win against Honduras and on 23 July 2011, he scored a hat-trick in a 7-2 win against Laos.
