Chinese champions Guangzhou Evergrande have claimed they have reached an agreement for Al Sadd’s Lee Jung-Soo.

The 31-year-old central defender, who helped Al Sadd win the 2011 AFC Champions League, recently declined a contract renewal from the Qatar Stars League side.

Shandong Luneng had previously been linked with the South Korea international, however Guangzhou appear to have moved in with president Liu Yongzhuo not denying an agreement had been reached.

“An agent recommended Lee Jung-Soo to us, but it depends on the number of foreign players,” he said, according to the Jinghua Times.

Guangzhou, who are coached by former World Cup winning boss Marcello Lippi, are understood to have made a move for his services ahead of their 2012 AFC Champions League quarter-final, with current Asian player Cho Won-Hee injured.

Under competition regulations, teams can only have four foreigners per squad, one of whom must be from the AFC.
