Jeju United said they’ve agreed to deal midfielder Yoon Bitgaram to Yanbian Changbaishan FC, which earned a promotion to the top-flight Chinese Super League for next year. The two sides agreed not to disclose further financial details of the transfer.
Yoon, 25, is the third South Korean attacker on Yanbian, coached by South Korean Park Tae-ha. Forward Ha Tae-goon has been with Yanbian for one season, while midfielder Kim Seung-dae signed with them last week.
Yoon, a former South Korean international, leaves the domestic league having netted 29 goals in 196 matches for three different clubs.
Yanbian were supposed to be relegated from the second-division China League One to the third-tier China League Two last year, but when one of the second-tier clubs, Shaanxi Wuzhou, had to be dissolved due to financial problems, Yanbian were allowed to stay in the League One.
Given the reprieve, Yanbian won the second-tier competition with 17 wins, 10 draws and three losses in 2015, and earned a promotion to the Chinese Super League for 2016.
