Australian defender Iain Fyfe has joined Busan I’Park on a two year deal from A-League side Adelaide United, whilst Busan duo Jung Sung-hoon and Lee Seung-hyun have been traded to Jeonbuk for Lee Yo-han and Lim Sang-hyub. Ulsan’s Paraguayan forward Jose Maria Ortigoza Ortiz has signed for Brazilian side Cruzerio, whilst Javier Arley Reina Calvo has left that Brazilian team to join Chunnam Dragons on a year long loan.
