Christian Benteke will shun any opportunity to move to China in this window.
The Crystal Palace striker is the subject of a lucrative £40million plus offer from Beijing Guoan while other Chinese clubs are also keen to sign the Belgium international.
However, Benteke is settled in London following his summer move from Liverpool and keen to kick on under Sam Allardyce at Selhurst Park.

The 26-year-old has scored eight goals in 17 appearances for Palace this season following his £27million transfer from Liverpool.
His decision to stay comes as Belgium team-mate Axel Witsel turned down Juventus to agree a deal with Chinese side Tianjin Quanjian.
Many have questioned Witsel’s decision to reject the chance of joining one of Europe’s elite clubs but the midfielder has explained why a move to China is so appealing.
Witsel is quoted as telling Italian publication Tuttosport: ‘It was a very difficult decision because on one hand there was a great team and a top club like Juventus.

‘But on the other there was a crucial offer for my family that I couldn’t turn down.
‘The leadership at Juventus have always behaved like gentlemen with me and I can only be grateful to them.
‘I will cheer for Juventus and I hope they can win the Champions League. Then who knows, maybe one day in the future our paths will finally meet.’
