Pohang, which is preparing for the new season under the new “Legend” coach Park Tae-ha, has Bucheon’s promising defender Lee Dong-hee (23).
According to sources in the transfer market on Sunday, Pohang recruited Lee Dong-hee to prepare for the departure of its main defender Ha Chang-rae (29) and Grant (29) from the team. “We have reached an agreement with the two clubs on players. An official announcement will be made soon,” the source said.
Lee Dong-hee is the first recruit to join the Steel Yard since Park Tae-ha was appointed. Lee Dong-hee is 1m86 tall and weighs 83kg, and has excellent physique. A graduate of Suwon Technical High School and Honam University, he joined Ulsan Hyundai in 2021, but failed to make his professional debut.
He moved to Bucheon in the K-League 2 in 2022 and secured an opportunity. He played in 21 games in his first season to secure his footing. He played in 32 games this season and solidified his starting lineup. He stood out to the extent that he ranked second in successful K-League 2 air ball competition and second in clearings. Watchers say that his strong physical capabilities provide perfect build-up skills.
Pohang has allowed only 40 goals in 38 games in the 2023 season. Jeonbuk and Gwangju only scored 35 fewer goals than Pohang. However, as Ha Chang-rae left for Japan and Grant left for China, the defense line was cracked. Ha Chang-rae will likely leave for Nagoya Grampus, the Japanese J-League, where he proposed a buyout, and Grant from Australia, who became a free agent, will leave for Jinmuhu, Tianjin, China, where he proposed a large amount of money. 월카지노
Pohang is now in a situation where it has to completely reorganize its defense line. For now, the recruitment of Lee Dong-hee has put out the urgent fire. In addition to Lee Dong-hee, Pohang plans to recruit additional center backs in Asian quarters. At the same time, it is said that it is also looking for foreign strikers to fill the position where Zeka, the main center forward, has left.
