Reporter Park Jae-ho = ‘Goalkeeper Restaurant’ Incheon United has extended contracts with goalkeepers Lee Tae-hee and Kim Dong-heon.
Incheon announced on the 2nd that it had agreed to a two-year contract extension and a one-year contract extension with Lee Tae-hee and Kim Dong-heon, two goalkeepers from the club’s youth team, respectively. Lee Tae-hee’s contract is until 2025, and Kim Dong-heon’s is until 2024.
Lee Tae-hee made his professional debut in Incheon in the 2014 season and Kim Dong-heon in the 2019 season. Lee Tae-hee was immediately called up from Daegeon High School ahead of the 2014 season, and Kim Dong-hun graduated from Daegeon High School and entered Yongin University in 2016. In his third year, he contributed to winning the ‘2018 U-League Wangjungwangjeon’ and joined Incheon in 2019.
Both players are ‘one-club men’ who have been active only in Incheon ever since their debut. The two played only in Incheon for more than 10 years, including the youth team period.
Lee Tae-hee said, “It’s an honor to be with Incheon for a longer time. I’m looking forward to playing on the Asian stage for the first time after joining Incheon.” 스포츠토토
