‘Korea’s top prospect’ Hyun-Joo Lee re-signs with Bayern Munich until 2027

South Korea’s top midfield prospect Lee Hyun-joo has decided to take on a new challenge after extending his contract with Bayern Munich.

The Bavarians announced on their official website on March 23 (KST), “Bayern has extended the contract of promising midfielder Hyun-Joo Lee until 2027 and decided to send him on loan to the German Bundesliga 2 for one more season. After making 31 appearances for SV Werder Wiesbaden in the 2023-2024 season, Hyun-Joo will spend the next season with Hannover 96.

Jochen Sauer, Bayern’s Director of Youth Development, said: “Despite the team’s relegation, Hyun-Joo had a good first season in the first team and developed as a footballer. He is moving on to the next level and heading to an ambitious club in Hannover. We will be following him closely and wish him the best of luck.”

Hyun-joo began to gain recognition after performing well at Pohang Steelers’ youth affiliate, Pohang Steel Middle School. He quickly rose through the ranks at Pohang Steel High School, where he was Pohang’s first choice. At this point, he received an offer from Bayern and decided to go straight to Europe on loan.

Instead of joining Bayern’s first team straight away, Hyun-Joo was given the opportunity to play in the second team. He adapted so well to life at Bayern that he was able to complete the transfer. He signed a contract until the 2024-2025 season. He was often called up to the first team and was recognized as a promising prospect by Bayern.

From the 2023-2024 season, he went on loan to Wiesbaden to gain first-team experience. As Bayern’s second team competed in the fourth division, it could have been difficult for Hyun-Joo to go straight to the second division, but he excelled. Although the team was relegated, Hyun-Joo showed that he could definitely play in the Bundesliga 2.

As a result, Bayern decided to extend his contract for another two years and send him on loan to Hannover to ensure that his development 스포츠토토 doesn’t stagnate. On the same day, Hannover announced on their official website, “Hyun-Joo Lee has moved from Bayern to Hannover on loan. We have an outright purchase clause for Lee Hyun-joo,” the club said.

Hannover Sporting Director Marcus Mann said: “Hyun-Joo is an exciting young player who can expand our options in midfield. He has good pace, is technically disciplined and has a high level of football intelligence. He has good decision-making and has the ability to get forward in tight spaces. He is also capable of scoring goals from midfield.”

“We have watched him develop quickly and strongly since moving to Europe. He knows the league well from the 2023-2024 season. We still see a lot of potential in him and we will give him the best support to achieve what he has,” he added.

“Hannover played really good soccer for most of the 2023-2024 season. They are a big club with a lot of fans and a great stadium. When I knew there was 카지노사이트 interest, it was quickly clear that I would go to Hannover. I’m happy because I’m a player who works hard and tries to give my best in every training session and every game,” he said.

Hannover finished sixth in the German Bundesliga 2 in the 2023-2024 season. After being relegated to the second division in the 2018-1019 season, the club has been in the mid-table ever since, but has managed to rebound a bit. If Hyun-Joo can help Hannover win promotion from the Bundesliga 2, there will be plenty of interest from Bundesliga clubs.
