Signing for Newcastle United on a free when his contract at Swansea ran out, Sung-yong Ki was meant to be that rock in front of the defence.
Unfortunately, for the year and half he was at the club, that didn’t happen, as he made just 23 appearances in all competitions for the Magpies.
A couple of injuries set him back here and there, and after Steve Bruce took over from Rafa Benitez, it was hard for the South Korea international to get game time.
That’s why the two parties decided to part ways amicably in the January transfer window, and the player is now without a club after terminating his contract at St James’ Park.
However, it hasn’t taken him long to find himself a potential new suitor, as the player himself has stated he is ‘in talks with SD Huesca’, currently fourth in La Liga2.
This comes after the defensive midfielder was in negotiations with FC Seoul, according to Korean outlet YTN.
Ki also has offers from the Middle East and the MLS, and while he was hoping to return to the K-League, the player is now looking elsewhere after talks with the aforementioned Korean side broke down.
