Transfers: FC Seoul sign former Ulsan Hyundai striker Bjørn Johnsen



FC Seoul have signed Norwegian international striker Bjørn Johnsen on a free transfer, the club announced on Saturday. 

The 31-year-old, who won the 2020 AFC Champions League with Ulsan Hyundai, will land at Incheon Airport on Saturday afternoon and will be officially unveiled at halftime during FC Seoul's home fixture with Incheon United on the same day.

No details have been provided by FC Seoul regarding the length of Johnsen's contract. 

The towering centre forward moved to MLS with CF Montreal after departing Ulsan in 2021 before moving to the Netherlands with SC Cambuur Leeuwarden.

Johnsen departed Cambuur on a free transfer following the club's relegation from the Dutch first tier, finishing 17th out of 18, 13 points from safety.

Johnsen made 13 appearances for the club, scoring three.

Before that, while in MLS with CF Montreal, Johnsen scored two in 26 appearances.
