손준호, '물심양면 도왔던 전북' 아닌 수원FC 선택... "세부 사항 조율 중 이견"

Former South Korean national soccer team midfielder Son Jun-ho is close to joining K League 1 side Suwon FC. He will not be returning to his former club, Jeonbuk Hyundai, after being detained by Chinese authorities for nearly 10 months.

A Suwon FC official said on Thursday, “Son Junho had a medical test this morning,” indicating that a contract is imminent.

The move to Suwon FC comes as a surprise as the player was preparing to return to the club after returning from China with the support of Jeonbuk. Jeonbuk is the club he played for before leaving for the Chinese league. Son joined Jeonbuk in 2018 and played for the club for three years, winning the K League 1 Most Valuable Player (MVP) award in the 2020 season.

The former Shandong Taishan (China) player was criminally detained in May last year when he tried to return home from China. 토토사이트 He returned to South Korea on March 25 after being investigated for nearly 10 months on charges of “soliciting non-state agents.

The crime of bribery of non-state agents is reportedly applied to those who illegally receive property from a company or other organization that is not a government agency.

It is not known if Son, who has vehemently denied the allegations, has been cleared by the Chinese government.

However, the KFA, after carefully reviewing the international transfer agreement issued by the Chinese Football Association, determined that there was no reason to disqualify Son Junho's player registration, so he joined K5 League club Yongsan Gunyung FC on March 22 and gradually began preparing for his return to the K League 1.

During this process, Jeonbuk gave him full support. Jeonbuk opened up its training grounds to him for personal training.

Late last month, an insider said, “Son Junho is doing personal training at Jeonbuk's training center. When he first arrived in Korea, he struggled psychologically, but now he is able to focus on his workouts. There is nothing wrong with him, and he is working hard to build his body.”

After being on the roster of Gunyung FC but not playing, Son Junho began working on a move to a K League 1 club ahead of the summer transfer window. He prioritized Jeonbuk, the club that had helped him, in his negotiations. However, the negotiations did not result in a contract.

“Jeonbuk cared a lot about Son Junho, so of course they were the first to sit down with him,” said a soccer insider. “I think Jeonbuk is feeling the pain of ‘why didn't Jeonbuk sign Son Junho,' but it wasn't about money. We completed the medical test, but we couldn't coordinate the detailed negotiations. We explained everything, but we couldn't narrow down the differences,” he said.
