Defender Lim Chae-min (33) returns to the K-League. The destination is Jeju United.
According to an official familiar with the transfer market, Lim Chae-min’s trip to Jeju has entered the final stage. He is said to be leaving only detailed negotiations behind.
Lim Chae-min, who went through Seongnam FC and Gangwon FC, transferred to Shenzhen FC after the 2021 season and set foot on the Chinese stage. However, his life at Shenzhen FC was not smooth, with his wages in arrears. Lim Chae-min’s return to the K-League was the last task to solve the contract issue with Shenzhen FC, but it was resolved smoothly. And Lim Chae-min chose Jeju as the K-League return team. 메이저사이트
Jeju is a team that has shown steady interest in recruiting Lim Chae-min. Although it failed, Jeju promoted the recruitment of Lim Chae-min before he left for the Chinese stage. Since then, he has continued to communicate with Lim Chae-min. Lim Chae-min also responded to Jeju’s steady and continuous interest and decided to transfer to Jeju.
In particular, Lim Chae-min will reunite with Jeju director Nam Ki-il. It has been 4 seasons since the 2019 season. After the 2019 season, Lim Chae-min moved to Gangwon and Nam moved to Jeju. In addition, Lim Chae-min will be working again with Yeon Je-woon, a defender wearing a new Jeju uniform this season. He has a good understanding of Nam’s football, and his former partner, Yeon Je-woon, is expected to have no major difficulties adapting to Jeju.
With this, Jeju has strengthened its defense even more and has a solid power. Including Lim Chae-min, Yeon Je-woon, Song Joo-hoon, Kim Oh-gyu, and Jeong-woon, the depth of the defensive line has also become quite thick. Depending on the tactics, several combinations can be put forward. In addition, Lim Chae-min, who is 188 cm tall, is the right person to fill the height that has been regarded as a weakness in Jeju’s defense. With the recruitment of Lim Chae-min, Nam’s plan to break the ‘yanggang’ structure between Ulsan Hyundai and Jeonbuk Hyundai is expected to gain momentum.
