Jesse Lingard agrees to shock FC Seoul deal



Jesse Lingard agrees to shock FC Seoul deal

Former Manchester United player Jesse Lingard has agreed to a shock deal to join FC Seoul.

The 31-year-old shared an Instagram photo of himself at the airport with his JLingz fashion label as he prepared to board a Korean Air flight.

Lingard has been without a club since leaving Nottingham Forest at the end of last season, with unsuccessful training stints with West Ham and Saudi Arabian club Al-Ettifaq.

He is not constrained by Thursday’s January transfer deadline, and the transaction is expected to be completed in the coming days.

Lingard is scheduled to arrive in South Korea on Monday for a physical before joining the team’s training camp in Kagoshima, Japan, with a’substantial’ salary on offer, according to the BBC.


”I heard about it two to three weeks ago, and I thought it was unrealistic,’ Seoul’s manager, Kim Gi-dong, said.

”I asked our director of football about it, and he replied to me: Yes, it’s true; we are in contact with the player, but the deal is not confirmed yet.

”If he comes, of course, it would be great for K-League, as more foreign fans would be interested in our league.

”And if he comes as he was not playing for a while, we need to give him time to adapt rather than expect an instant impact,” he added.
