Jesse Lingard has made an early impression in training at FC Seoul, with the former England star sharing clips of him scoring some stunning goals.
Lingard, 31, completed a shock move to the South Korean outfit last week, penning a two-year deal with the option of a third.
It followed a lengthy spell without a club after leaving Nottingham Forest at the end of last season, although Mail Sport reported Lingard had offers from as many as 26 teams from around the world, including FC Seoul and Lazio.
Lingard did spend time training with West Ham and Al-Ettifaq, but no contract was forthcoming, before he moved to the K-League outfit as he aims to relaunch his career.
And, in his early sessions with FC Seoul, the 32-cap England international has shown signs that he still plenty to give.

Taking to his Instagram story, Lingard shared several clips and photos from his new life in Asia.
This included photos mingling with his new team-mates, while he also shared two videos of him scoring goals in training.
In one, Lingard received the ball at the edge of the box, before curling an effort in off the bar.
In a second, Lingard took a touch and then rifled the ball in on the half volley, giving the keeper no chance, as he then proceeded to nonchalantly walk away.
After the move was confirmed last Wednesday, Lingard said: ‘New beginnings! So excited to finally get back on the pitch and do what I love the most.
‘I’m so grateful for the love and support in South Korea, @FC Seoul.’
Appearing in a separate video on the club’s Instagram, the ex-Man United forward said: ‘My dream from a young child was to play in the Premier League and I’ve always worked hard to achieve that goal. I’ve always wanted different challenges to create new memories in my career and I believe being in South Korea is the place for that. Jesse Lingard is in FC Seoul.’
Speaking in a press conference, Lingard added: ‘I’m very excited. It’s a new challenge. I’ve accepted it, I’m here and I’m ready to embrace the culture. It’s a new beginning for me, a new chapter in my career. I just want to enjoy playing football again, putting a smile on people’s faces and showing Korean fans what I can do

The former Man United star also revealed that he ‘had multiple offers’ over the past seven months. He added: ‘When FC Seoul came into the equation, the commitment that they showed, they came to Manchester to watch me train.
‘They came with the contract on paper so I think the commitment shown by the club really in my mind, I had already made up where I wanted to go because, as I say, there was multiple offers, they was all verbal offers, but the commitment shown by FC Seoul showed how much interest and how much they wanted me at the club so it was only right for me to repay that and come to the club.’
FC Seoul are six-time K League winners, although they finished seventh in the top flight last season.
They begin their 2024 league campaign with a clash against Gwangju FC on March 2 and Lingard will hope to build up his fitness with some pre-season friendlies in the meantime.
