Jeong Sang-bin moves to England


It was announced at the end of the week that Wolverhampton 
Wanderers had signed their second Korean of the transfer window following the news Hwang Hee-chan had joined the club on a permanent deal until 2026. This was seen as the lesser-known winger Jeong Sang-bin joined from Suwon Samsung Bluewings, with the young South Korean international heading straight back out the door joining Grasshopper Club Zurich on an 18-month loan.

K League to England 

The signing is the first time an English side has brought a player directly in from the K League since 2013 when Yun Suk-young signed from Jeonnam Dragons to Queens Park Rangers. To Jeong, the 19-year-old joins after a breakthrough season with Suwon Samsung Bluewings where he made 24 appearances scoring six times.

Jeong Sang-bin has been impressive since making the breakthrough with Bluewings last season and the winger has represented his country at senior level too scoring in a 5-0 victory over Sri Lanka in June 2021. Before pursuing a career in the first team with his fellow countryman Hwang, Jeong will have to impress in an 18-month loan spell with Grasshopper Club Zürich in the Swiss top flight. 

Assuming the side decide to put him in straight away the young winger could make his debut on Sunday away to Sion in a proper mid-table clash in the Swiss Super League with the sides sitten sixth and seventh respectively.
