Kia Tigers’ Yang Hyun-jong and the FA’s first negotiation, ace remaining operations have begun.
Kia has finally begun to move for the ace’s stay.
The Kia Tigers had their first negotiation with Yang Hyun-jong’s agent on the 14th. It is the first time that the two sides have met since the end of November last year when the free agent market opened 토토사이트
At the meeting, the Kia Tigers presented their first approximate terms of contract. Kia Tigers manager Cho Gye-hyun said, “The team’s working-level official and Yang Hyun-jong’s agent met for the first time yesterday. “It’s the first official negotiation,” he said. “We talked about the terms of the contract for the first time yesterday.”
In KIA, Ace Yang Hyun-jong and No. 4 hitter Choi Hyung-woo both qualified for FA after last season. Naturally, the Kia Tigers are making it their biggest challenge in the Stove League to keep both of them. While waiting for Yang Hyun-jong to try to enter overseas markets, KIA, which signed with Choi Hyung-woo for three years first in December, has been waiting for Yang Hyun-jong’s decision. Kia, which said it would wait until mid-January when Yang Hyun-jong decided to negotiate with U.S. clubs, had set “January 20” as a kind of starting date for negotiations. As January 20 approached, KIA began to move.
“I also had a cup of tea with the agent not too long ago and exchanged greetings,” said Cho Gye-hyun, head of the group. “Yang Hyun-jong seems to have a strong will to enter the U.S. so far.” There are a few days left until the 20th, but we can’t stay still, so we met for now. It’s just the beginning, so we’ll have to wait and see before we move forward, but we had a good conversation.
Yang has yet to make a final decision on whether to enter the U.S. Although it is waiting for a major guarantee contract, it seems that no final offer has been made yet. While Yang Hyun-jong was considering whether to accept the sub-level contract proposal, KIA began to move. While Yang Hyun-jong has yet to make a final decision on whether to go to the U.S., there seems to be room for Yang Hyun-jong’s mind to move depending on the proposal as Kia begins negotiations.
The Kia Tigers waited for Yang Hyun-jong, who had earned his first FA qualification even after the 2016 season. After signing a contract for 10 billion won for four years with Choi Hyung-woo, who was an FA at Samsung at the time, he signed a one-year contract for 2.3 billion won in annual salary when Yang Hyun-jong decided to stay in KIA.
