Transfer Talk: Jeju United

Which player signed in the winter transfer window has performed best for your team this season?

Luckily after losing some very key players over the winter break, a lot of the new signings have come in and done excellently. It's hard to look past Marcelo as the stand out performer though and his six goals and eight assists means he is well on his way to emulating Lopes' assist and goals record from last season. He combines very well with the other attackers and can hold the ball up as well as dribble at other players. If he can keep his form up for the rest of the season we will have a good chance at staying in the higher places in the league.

While not exactly a winter signing, Kwon Soon-hyung only made a handful of appearances at the end of last season after finishing his military service so feels new.  He has done fantastically in midfield and anchors the team really well, he also has an eye for goal and has chipped in with four so far this season.

Which position if any do you think your team needs to target most this transfer window?

We have a pretty well balanced squad at the moment, with cover in most positions. Perhaps a bit of cover at CM wouldn't go a miss as injuries to either Kwon Soon-hyung or Song Jin-hyung could see us weakened quite badly.

Is there a player within the K-League you'd like to see your team sign? An international player?

Jeju don't really seem to have the pull of the top teams so any signings would likely have to come from further down the league or a player not getting game time at a bigger club. Yun Ju-tae at Seoul seems like he knows were the goal is. He doesn't stand much of a chance of getting game time at Seoul and at the age of 26 I think a move to Jeju could work out for all parties. 

Is there someone on the team you'd like to see loaned out or sold?

Unfortunately for him Kim Hyun doesn't seem to be able to break into the first 11. He is now 23 and hasn't been given enough football to improve so perhaps a loan spell would be a good idea so he can actually improve his game. 

We are at our full foreign player capacity and Moises and Karanga have barely played this season so perhaps swapping one of those two out for someone new could also be a good idea. 

Realistically who would be a great signing for the league?

Tough question really. I'm not sure if Edu would go back to a team that isn't Jeonbuk but he would likely be a good buy for anyone who could afford him. Any of the Korean's playing in Europe but not getting game time could be good, although that would only likely happen with some of the older players. Now the Chinese league appears to have its sights set a little higher than the K League, perhaps we could start buying back some of the quality players that left over the last few years.

  1. Moises and Karanga were released. Former Gangwon striker Henan was signed. So a foreign spot available. Edu will be great
