* The 23-year-old is currently uncontratced after graduating from Jungwon University, where he played in the U-League.

Choi has represented South Korea at multiple junior age levels.

* He has also spent time in the youth system at Jeonbuk Motors.


“Jun’s come over, he trained with us a couple of weeks last season,” Victory boss Kevin Muscat said.

Kevin Muscat says his Melbourne Victory team is full of desire heading into Sunday's semi final.

“He’s someone we’ve been monitoring. He’s come out of the university system in Korea.

“We’ve studied that market a little bit and it’s difficult to get players out of Asia once they commit to a club because they put them on long-term deals.

“We’re just having a look at him and giving him that experience, but at the same time we’ve still got an opportunity to sign a couple of foreigners so we’ll see what happens.”
