Transfers: FC Seoul Sign Han Chanhee From Jeonnam Dragons

FC Seoul have signed 22 year-old midfielder Han Chanhee from K League 2 side Jeonnam Dragons with Hwang Kiwook and Shin Sungjae heading the opposite direction in a two for one swap deal. 

Dubbed 'the next Ki Sungyeung', Han Chanhee has joined FC Seoul from K League 2 side Jeonnam Dragons on a three-year contract with fellow midfielders Hwang Kiwook and Shin Sungjae heading in the opposite direction in a two-for-one swap deal.

The 22 year-old has been a first team regular at Gwangyang Stadium since 2016 and has racked up over 100 league appearances already. In 2019, Han, who has been capped 20 times at youth level, scored three goals in 30 appearances in K League 2, and provided two assists.

Since Lee Myungjoo's departure to Al Wahda, Choi Yongsoo has been looking to recruit an attacking midfielder to partner Uzbekistan international Ikromjon Alibaev and so Suncheon-born Han will be seen as an ideal replacement.

Prior to Jeonnam's relegation from K League 1 in 2018, Han featured 71 times in the top division, scoring six goals and laying on nine assists.

During the 2018 season, Han's last in the top flight, he boasted of an 82% pass accuracy, 58% for long passes, 44.8% for crosses and 59% of all dribbles were successful, in a season which yielded five assists and two goals.

Last term, Han had an overall passing accuracy of 79.5%, 56.7% for long passes, 29.25% for crosses with two assists and three goals.

Speaking on his move to Sangan, Han Chanhee said: "I am pleased to join such a good team. Because Seoul are a team who can challenge for the title, I want to become a player who can help them do that".

The deal also sees two players head to Gwangyang in part exchange, midfielders Hwang Kiwook and Shin Sungjae.

Hwang was a regular for Seoul in 2017 and 2018 but was deemed surplus to requirements by current FC Seoul boss Choi Yongsoo whilst Shin is yet to make a first team appearance but can operate as a central midfielder, wing back or centre back.

"I am pleased to join Jeonnam Dragons. I want to settle in as quickly as possible during the winter training camp so I can perform as best I can. I'll do my best to make sure this season is one of growth", said Hwang via the Dragons media channels.

Dragons boss Jeon Kyungjun had his say on the deal: "This trade deal for Han Chanhee will have a positive effect on the club, I think. Hwang Kiwook and Shin Sungjae, these are two players I have have been watching and will useful for the team in areas of the pitch where they are needed and will do well for us."
