Flash Sign South Korean Midfielder Jeon Ga Eul

01/01/2016 12:00 PM -

The Western New York Flash announced today that the club has signed South Korean midfielder Jeon Ga Eul, pending the receipt of her P-1 visa and International Transfer Certificate (ITC).  Per team and league policy, terms of the contract were not announced.

Jeon’s signing is a historical one for both the Flash and the National Women’s Soccer League, as she becomes the first South Korean born player in the NWSL. 

"Jeon should make an immediate impact with our club, while also providing leadership on the field.  Her ability to get the ball to her teammates' feet is impressive," said Flash General Manager Rich Randall. "Her discipline and on-field vision will be a key piece to our success this year.  We are excited for her arrival this March."

Jeon, 27, helped Korea Republic reach the Round of 16 in the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup after claiming second place in Group E. The midfielder played every minute of all four matches, scoring a goal against Costa Rica and adding an assist versus Spain. South Korea ultimately bowed out in the first stage of the Knockout Round on a 3-0 loss to perennial powerhouse France.

Ga Eul debuted with Korea Republic in 2007 and has accumulated 72 caps and 34 goals thus far. At the club level, she most recently played with Hyundai Steel Red Angels of the South Korean WK-League, the highest level of play in South Korea.

In 2009, Jeon started her professional career playing with Suwon FMC where, in 2010, she helped lead the club to the 2010 WK-League Championship. In that same season, she was named the WK-League’s Most Valuable Player and was also honored as the Korea Football Associations’ Best Player at its annual awards. 

Ga Eul joined the Red Angels in 2010, where she has played ever since. In 98 total WK matches, Jeon has scored 30 goals and added 12 assists.
