Sitting second-bottom of K League 2 and winless since April, Daejeon Citizen have signed an agreement with Fortaleza Esporte Clube and Fluminense Football Club from the top division in Brazil which will see the clubs have first refusal on players.

Also, Daejeon will be able to loan players from the Brazilian outfits’ B teams without needing to pay a loan fee and will also have the option of a full transfer following the completion of any loan deal. 

Marcelo Paz, Chairman of Fortaleza Esporte Clube said: “We hope that the two teams will develop together through the exchange of first team and youth players.”

In addition, Mario Bittencourt, the Chairman of Fluminense, said: “We hope the two clubs can build a friendly relationship through the agreement. Also, we hope to help Daejeon Citizen win promotion to the first division.”

Daejeon have managed just three wins all season. In May, the club parted company with manager Ko Jongsoo with what was new CEO Choi Yonggyu’s first real act since taking over from the derisive Kim Ho.

Lee Heungsil was appointed as the club’s new permanent manager at the start of July after caretaker manager Park Chul oversaw four defeats and a draw from the five matches in charge.

Speaking after being appointed as manager, Lee Heungsil identified which areas of the pitch the citizen club need to strengthen:

"We need someone who can score goals, a player who can finish. We need a centre back as well as a defensive midfielder, those are some positions which I feel we can strengthen but a striker is what's the most urgent, I feel."
