Park Ji-sung to rejoin PSV Eindhoven on loan from QPR: reports
SEOUL, July 28 (Yonhap) -- South Korean footballer Park Ji-sung is set to rejoin his former club PSV Eindhoven in the top Dutch league on a one-year loan deal from Queens Park Rangers (QPR) in England, news reports in the Netherlands said on Sunday.

   Voetbal International, a Dutch football magazine, reported online that the midfielder arrived in Eindhoven on Saturday, local time, and is scheduled to undergo a medical test on Sunday.

   Another news site, Soccernew.nl, also said Park is expected to have his medical test on Sunday before completing his move to the Dutch club.

   The 32-year-old played for Eindhoven from 2003 to 2005. He had previously played for Kyoto Purple Sanga in Japan's J. League, but after his breakout performance at the 2002 FIFA World Cup under head coach Guus Hiddink, the Dutchman took the South Korean star with him to the Netherlands upon being named the new coach of Eindhoven.

   Park played for the Dutch club until 2005 before moving to Manchester United to become the first South Korean in the English Premier League.

   Then after the 2011-12 season, Park signed with QPR. He began the new season as QPR's new captain, but things quickly turned sour as Park struggled with injuries and was later stripped of his captaincy.

   QPR finished dead last among 20 Premier League clubs and was relegated to the second division for the upcoming season.

   In the last season, Eindhoven finished second in the top Dutch circuit, called Eredivisie, right behind Ajax.
