Lingard to FC Seoul Arrives Today (5th) In Korea… If he passes the medical test, he will transform into a K-League player. → Jeon Hoon will join
Jesse Lingard (32), who has emerged as a “super typhoon” in the winter transfer market of the K-League, is heading to FC Seoul. Lingard will enter Incheon International Airport as scheduled on the afternoon of May 5 and begin a medical test to complete the process of joining the Seoul club.
If no reason for disqualification is followed, Lingard is likely to make his K-League debut wearing a Seoul uniform in the 2024 season.
The Seoul national team, which conducted its first winter training camp in Hua Hin, Thailand, last month in preparation for the new season, entered Kagoshima, Japan, the second site of its training camp. Ki Sung-yueng, who had showdowns with Lingard in the English Premier League while playing for Swansea City, recently renewed his contract with Seoul and joined the Kagoshima camp. Interest in Lingard is also mounting as he participates in Kagoshima training once he becomes a “Seoul man.”
Seoul manager Kim Ki-dong, who met with Sports Seoul, said, “Lyngaard was briefed on the situation,” adding, “Of course, I was suspicious at first (whether Lindgaard is willing to go to the K-League), but I am watching.”
In Seoul, Willian, who played on loan until last year and became a “Seoul man” due to a minor adductor muscle (inner thigh muscle) injury during his previous training, and head coach Kim jokingly said, “If Lingard (who is in the same position) comes, he will do well together,” but hoped that the actual transfer would be made.
Lingard, who not only showed remarkable performance at the EPL Manchester United but also played for England, spent last season as an “invincible” after serving as a Nottingham Forest player. Lingard has been faithfully training individually to make a comeback, but was recently linked to FC Seoul while searching for new destinations including the Saudi Arabian league. It has been confirmed that an agency called Made In Football has been negotiating with Lingard. Seoul began to move in earnest from last month. A revenge official who knew the Seoul club well said, “A huge player could come,” and he was Lingard.
It has been confirmed that Seoul has dispatched team officials to England to check his physical condition in consideration of Lingard’s absence. Seoul, which is drawing reconstruction of a famous family under the “Kim Ki-ho” system, sat at the negotiating table confident that Lingard could make a comeback in the K-League. Lingard is also known to have accepted an appropriate salary suitable for the Asian league industry, showing sincerity that he wants to show his skills again. 헤라카지노도메인
Officials and players of other teams who trained in Kagoshima are also interested in Lingard’s moves. Having trained in Kagoshima until Saturday, Ko Seung-bum of Ulsan FC said that Lingard’s performance in the EPL has been more than six months since he entered the actual game. “Experience cannot be ignored because he is an EPL player.”
Seoul colleagues who can share a meal with Lingard are also curious. Veteran Lim Sang-hyeop said, “It is true that I wonder how I will work with my colleagues if Lingard joins.”
