Yun Suk-Young possible transfer with Fulham / Suk Hyun-Jun transfer to Marítimo

January 23, 2013

The Tavern is on the run this morning -so this will be a super quick sketch, more details coming soon > and all eyes later will be at Swansea’s Liberty Stadium for the 2nd leg of the Capital Cup semifinal with Chelsea. Ki Sung-Yeung and Swansea have a 2 goal aggregate lead going into the game this afternoon and we’ll be back to talk about the game later. > update: we will start another post in just a few minutes. Kickoff will be in 15 minutes from now…

 

So the 2 big news items surfacing last night: a deal to bring Yun Suk-Young to Fulham is starting to materialize, this according to several Korean media sources including daum.net. However Chunnam Dragons refused Fulham’s initial request to hold a trial for the highly sought after left back. If we are understanding events correctly, it appears now that Fulham will not hold trials, but does want to proceed with negotiations for a transfer to happen before the January transfer window closes. Again the Tavern will return for more context on the situation this afternoon. UPDATE: An article in Naver.com (brought to our attention by a microblogger going by the twitter handle @Celta18Park) highlighted some of the contractual back and forth between Chunnam and Fulham on the ‘trial’ issue, which has angered the twittersphere. Even John Duerden chimed in via twitter that a trial shouldn’t be necessary as he proved himself on numerous occasions, including the Bronze medal Taeguk Warrior Olympic run this past summer. Back to the article: if our translation is correct, Chunnam Dragon’s president went on the record saying the transfer deal is a “90% done deal.

We received a link from a Tavern reader from Portuguese club Maritimo’s official website confirming a successful transfer for Suk Hyun-Jun (thank you to Mr A!). The Korean striker comes over from Netherlands club FC Groningen. Maritimo is currently in 5th place in the Portugese Liga –and if the deal for Yoon Bit-Garam goes through for a transfer to SC Braga, there will be (if we can add correctly despite lack of sleep) 2 Koreans plying their trade in the Portugal. Whoa!

We will return later this afternoon to talk about several more items including some news on Lee Chung-Young and the Swansea v Chelsea clash – one more win and Swansea will be in the finals at Wembley! Stay tuned…
