An official familiar with the K-League transfer market told Goal.com on the 14th that “Jung Tae-wook is going to Jeonbuk.” Jeonbuk, who had been worried about the central defender position since last season, resolved their concerns by recruiting Jeong Tae-wook.
Jung Tae-wook, who made his professional debut by joining Jeju in 2018, moved to Daegu the following year and blossomed. He played 141 games in four seasons in Daegu and emerged as a key defensive resource.
Jeonbuk has already been interested in signing Jeong Tae-wook since last season. As the depth of the center back weakened, he pushed for a recruitment, but it was not possible. In the end, he recruited Park Jin-seop from Daejeon Hana Citizen and put him in defense to fill the gap to some extent. However, ahead of the 2023 season, he tried to recruit Jeong Tae-wook more actively and eventually made the transfer.
According to officials, Jeonbuk met the buyout amount of 1.5 million dollars for Jeong Tae-wook, and as a result, Jeong Tae-wook was put on the Jeonbuk uniform.
