Marcelino Junior Lopes Arruda (Contract Terminated)


Jeonnam Dragons Pohang Steelers


[tooltip tip=”An experienced former World Cup midfielder leaves Australia; a good signing for Jeonnam.”]Kim Jae-Sung (Adelaide United)[/tooltip]


[tooltip tip=”Key in Daejeon’s 2015 promotion run, he is one of the proven Brazilian wingers with pace and nothing else. Could help Pohang’s title push.”]Wanderson (Loan from Atletico Goianiense)[/tooltip]

[tooltip tip=”FC Seoul have opened the pocketbooks and get their much needed box-to-box MF. When LMJ goes to Sangju next year, Shin Jinho will come back – smart business negotiating the Sangju cancer.”]Lee Myung-Joo (Al Ain)[/tooltip]

[tooltip tip=”The first Iranian to ever play in the K League; can a centreback in the mould of Quieroz teach the K League’s pitiful defenses something new?”]Khaled Shafiei (Tractor Sazi)[/tooltip]

[tooltip tip=”Disappointing to see him go, but Jeong showed at the Olympics that he is promising. A move to a club that will play him is not a bad career move.”]Jeong Seung-Hyun (Sagan Tosu)[/tooltip]

[tooltip tip=”Actually a little surprising, he was Ulsan’s best player for large swathes of the previous two years. However, this frees up a foreign player slot that Ulsan could use to solve their attacking woes.”]Ivan Kovacec (Contract Terminated)[/tooltip]

[tooltip tip=”Newcastle Herald: The 24-year-old did not receive the game time he had hoped for under Ulsan’s manager, Kim Do-hoon. Petratos: Different culture, different people. You’ve got to try and adjust to it. Sometimes it’s good; sometimes it’s not so good.”]Dimitri Petratos (Newcastle Jets)[/tooltip]

Paulo Sergio (Contract Terminated)

Oh Do-Hyun (Loan to Pohang Steelers)
