A move for the PSG defender has been ruled out by the CSL outfit, who already have their allotted amount of foreign players

Chinese Super League side Shanghai SIPG have no interest in signing Paris Saint-Germain captain Thiago Silva during the January transfer window.

SIPG ­– coached by former Porto and Fenerbahce boss Vitor Pereira following Andre Villas-Boas' departure – have been linked with a move for the 33-year-old Brazil international defender.

However, CSL clubs are only allowed to registered four foreign players on the roster, and Shanghai SIPG have three Brazilian stars Hulk, Oscar, Elkeson and Uzbekistan captain Odil Ahmedov on their books.

Argentine playmaker Dario Conca has also returned to Shanghai SIPG after a less than impressive loan spell with Flamengo. 

But the 35-year-old has been deemed surplus to requirements by coach Vitor Pereira and is being heavily linked with a move this month.

"We have already had four foreign players in our squad," an SIPG spokesperson told Xinmin Evening News .

"The club will not make changes in personnel, at least in the first half of the season."

Silva has made 14 Ligue 1 appearances this season as PSG top the table by eight points.

PSG, who lost to Lyon in the league last week, welcome Montpellier to the French capital Saturday.
