BEIJING - South Korea's midfielder Song Ju-hun has joined Chinese Super League (CSL) side Shenzhen FC, according to local reports.
Standing 1.9 meters tall, Song became a free agent as his former club Tianjin Tianhai withdrew from the CSL due to financial difficulties ahead of the new season.
It's reported that Song has signed a six-month contract with Shenzhen FC as he has to go back to South Korea to serve in the army.
