Lingard joined the K-League side after seven months without a club following his exit from Nottingham Forest in the summer.

After settling into life in the South Korean capital, Lingard has shared a series of snaps to Instagram.

In the life update, he included a picture of himself grinning inside the Sangam Stadium whilst wearing his new Seoul FC shirt.

Lingard also posted a snap of himself signing his £17,500-per-week contract with the club.

His deal, which is reportedly worth £910,000 a year, has made him the highest paid player in the K-League.

Away from the stadium, Lingard showed off the city skyline and tucked into some local cuisine with his team-mates.

He also posted a pair of selfies of himself in his new training kit, along with a screenshot from a facetime call home.

Finally, the 31-year-old attached a motivational quote reading: “Becoming the best version of yourself comes with a lot of goodbyes.”


Lingard received a hero’s welcome after completing his shock switch to South Korea earlier this month.

He has yet to make his debut for Seoul, with the new K-League season set to begin on March 1.

The six-time champions finished seventh last season.

Their squad includes former Premier League midfielder and South Korea international Ki Sung-yueng.

The 35-year-old made 187 Prem appearances for Swansea, Sunderland and Newcastle.
