Report: Ex-Newcastle midfielder Ki Sung-yueng drawing interest from MLS teams

Ki Sung-yueng is currently without a team, and now the former Premier League midfielder has been linked with several unnamed MLS clubs.

The 31-year-old was last on the books at RCD Mallorca, joining in February during their La Liga relegation battle. He only featured in one match, though, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and his contract ending.

This past February, Ki was linked with another MLS move by the same reporter. That came after he departed Newcastle United, having played in 23 games for the top-flight side. Ki has also played extensively for Celtic, Swansea City and Sunderland. All told, the midfielder totaled 15 goals and 11 assists in 187 Premier League games.

Should Ki come to MLS, he’d double the South Korean contingent alongside Vancouver Whitecaps midfielder Inbeom Hwang. The latter is a key player for the Taegeuk Warriors, while Ki retired from international soccer in 2019 after making 113 appearances.
