‘Completely withdrawn’ Gangwon part ways with foreign striker Yago…’hijacked’ Ulsan expected to move to Seoul

Gangwon FC part ways with foreign striker Yago. Yago’s new destination is likely to be Ulsan HD.

“The club has decided to completely withdraw from the Yago recruitment battle after discussions,” a Gangwon official said on Aug. 28.

Yago joined Gangwon on loan last summer when they were in relegation danger. He helped the club stay up with one goal and one assist in 11 games. This season, he’s become more integrated into the K League and has helped lead Gangwon’s rise. He has eight goals and one assist in 17 games and is in contention for the top scorer. He is one goal behind the top scorers 토토사이트 Lee Seung-woo (Suwon FC), Ilyuchenko (FC Seoul), and Mugosa (Incheon United).

Gangwon is ready to make a full-scale move for Yago this summer. About two weeks ago in Seoul, Kangwon officials, including president Kim Byung-ji, met with Yago’s original club, Portimonense, and his Korean and local agents to discuss the transfer. After verbal discussions, Gangwon sent an official transfer agreement and proceeded with the signing process.

However, there was no further response from Portimonense. Kangwon needed to finalize the transfer before June 30, the end of Yago’s loan. In a panic, Kang Won set out to find out what was going on and got information that Ulsan was negotiating with Portimonense through another agent. It was a hijacking attempt. After receiving a concrete offer from Ulsan, Portimonense was in a quandary.

Yago also had a change of heart. He had initially expressed his intention to stay at Kangwon, but recently changed his mind. Believing that trust had been broken, Kangwon decided to pull out of the recruitment process altogether.

With Kangwon’s withdrawal, the possibility of Ulsan keeping Yago has increased. Ulsan is currently planning to replace some of its foreign players who have not been able to integrate into the team. The team is looking to win its third consecutive league title, and Yago, who doesn’t need to adjust to the K League, will help them compete for the title. Gangwon, on the other hand, will be looking for a new foreign striker.
