Defender Yun Suk-young is set to join the Queens Park Rangers in the English Premier League, the player’s South Korean club announced Thursday.
The Chunnam Dragons of the first-division K League Classic said in a press release that Yun will leave the team’s training camp in Bangkok, Thailand, to undergo medical tests before signing with the London-based club.
Should he pass those tests, Yun will become the 11th South Korean player to don a Premier League uniform.
He will also join South Korean veteran Park Ji-sung on QPR.
The Dragons and QPR have agreed not to disclose further details of the contract, the Korean club said.
Yun, 22, played 86 games in four seasons for the Dragons. He was an integral member of the South Korean Olympic squad that won the bronze medal at the London Games last year.
It was South Korea’s first Olympic medal in football.
Yun made his senior national team debut last October against Iran during the Asian qualifying tournament for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, and was recalled for the Feb. 6 friendly against Croatia in London. (Yonhap News)
