Lee Ju-yong of Jeonbuk ↔ Woo-jae Jeong of Jeju, trade confirmed between side DFs right before the opening

A large trade was made ahead of the opening of the 2023 season. Born in 1992, same-age defenders Lee Ju-yong (Jeonbuk) and Jung Woo-jae (Jeju) will swap uniforms.토토사이트

On the 21st, multiple transfer market officials said, “Jeonbuk Jeju agreed to the trade of Lee Ju-yong and Jung Woo-jae. It was a one-on-one exchange, and only the announcement was left.”

Lee Ju-yong and Jung Woo-jae are side defenders who play on the left flank. Both clubs exchanged players in the same position to suit their needs.

Jeonbuk got a multi-defender who can handle both sides of the defense. It is considered a resource to relieve the burden of starting fullback Kim Jin-soo and Kim Moon-hwan.

Jeju got a ‘chance maker’ to maximize the scoring power of tall strikers such as Yuri and Jin Seong-wook. As a typical left-footed left-back, Lee Ju-yong’s specialty is crossing.

Jeonbuk Jeju has steadily measured the trade ‘each’ of the two players since December of last year. The starting point was that Jung Woo-jae wanted a new challenge.

The ‘deal’, which fizzled out because the conditions did not match each other, caught fire again this month when both teams returned from overseas training.

An official hinted, “Jung Woo-jae still opened the door to transfer, but this time Lee Ju-yong also started to show interest in the transfer.”

Jung Woo-jae made his professional debut at Seongnam FC in 2014, went through Chungju Hummel (2015), and blossomed in Daegu, where he joined in 2016.

In 2019, he traded with Jung Tae-wook, who was Jeju’s center back at the time, and wore a Jeju uniform and played an active role as a key resource until last season. He appeared in 28 games last season and recorded one assist. I ended up eating rice with Jeong Tae-wook (Jeonbuk), whom I traded with four years ago, in Jeonju.

Lee Ju-yong made his professional debut in Jeonbuk in 2014 and walked the path of a ‘one club man’. In Incheon, where he joined last season as a loaner, he only played 10 games due to injuries and other reasons. He joins the hands of director Ki-il Nam in Jeju and sings of resurrection.

Jeonbuk and Jeju will face off for the first time of the season in Round 5, which will be held in Seogwipo on March 12.
