Overwatch League team London Spitfire may well have just won Stage 1 of the competition after victory in the playoffs at the end of the first five weeks, but new reports are indicating that some of their players may be being transferred elsewhere.
ESPN is reporting that Dallas Fuel has agreed a contract transfer for Kim 'Rascal' Dong-jun, according to alleged sources close to both the teams and the player, with the transfer pending approval from the league. "We're pursuing negotiations with the Dallas Fuel to make this transfer happen," Spitfire CEO Jack Etienne said to ESPN.
If this happens, this means Rascal could compete with Fuel in Stage 2 from February 21 onwards, but that's not the only Spitfire playing allegedly moving away, as a separate ESPN report claims Chan-hyung 'Fissure' Baek will be moving to Los Angeles Gladiators, according again to alleged sources close to the player and the teams. "We're pursuing negotiations with the Los Angeles Gladiators to make this transfer happen," Etienne once more told ESPN.
Do you think these are good transfers by Spitfire?
