Yesterday, the ‘Free Agency’ season started and from then, teams and players all around the world are allowed to make official announcements about roster movements and player transfers.
One of the first confirmed pieces of information we received came from the North American LCS, where Team SoloMid has acquired a legendary top laner for the 2021 season: Heo ‘Huni‘ Seung-hoon.
Huni arrived at the LCS back in 2018, after shining with Fnatic and ending second in the League of Legends World Championship with SKT Telecom. Once in the North American league, his career slowed down, and his performance and success never stopped decreasing.
Now, the veteran player will have a new chance to go back to where he belongs, and become a top tier top laner with one of the strongest teams in the region.
Huni will replace Broken Blade as the top laner of the dynastic North American franchise.

This roster movement has many consequences: Sergen ‘Broken Blade‘ Çelik parts ways with TSM, but his future is not uncertain! We have also known that the former TSM top laner will join Schalke 04 after Andrei ‘Odoamne‘ Pascu has been announced to join Rogue as their new top laner, in substitution of Finn ‘Finn‘ Wiestål, who has been announced to join Counter Logic Gaming in the LCS.
After this top laner chaos, let’s continue with TSM roster movements.
During the first day of the ‘Free Agency’ show, we had some interesting bombs… but there was one of them that shook the community. Apparently, 2020 Worlds Finalist Hu ‘SwordArt‘ Shuo-Chieh and Team SoloMid are negotiating an agreement for the upcoming season.
Both parties appear to be interested in this agreement to happen, and the Taiwanese Support could part ways with Suning soon and move to North America.
This information, coming from sources revealed by Jacob Wolf and Esportmaniacos, comes alongside bad news: there are some immigration issues that could frustrate the signing.
Will cover myself here a bit: As @JacobWolf said on the Free Agency show, both parts want the deal to happen, but there is some immigration stuff that can frustate the signing. pic.twitter.com/2Vfu0UStcq

As Jacob Wolf confirms in the video above, the player and the teams have agreed to terms, but there is no further information about the migration policies.
Nevertheless, there was a comment in the chat from TSM Reginald that gave some light to this possible transfer:
Stay tuned to have every update!
