Pilot announced his departure from PSG and the intent to play for Chinese team DS Gaming.

Na “Pilot” Woo-hyung announced Wednesday he will leave Paris Saint-Germaine and play for DS Gaming in China.

Pilot shared on Facebook that his contract with PSG of European Challenger Series Paris Saint-Germaine ended in April, and he will join DS Gaming in China’s secondary league for the summer split.

“After much discussion with many teams after my contract with PSG, I have decided to join a Chinese team called DS Gaming for the summer, as they have been very understanding of my position,” he wrote. “Thank you for all the fans who cheered for me, and I promise to show more good performances.”

PSG, owned by the French soccer giant with the same name, had high hopes of challenging for a spot in the European League of Legends Championship Series this summer. The team finished third in the Challenger Series and qualified for the spring playoffs, but lost to FNATIC Academy 3-2 and failed to reach the promotional tournament.

DS Gaming has been active since 2016, and placed fifth in the LSPL with a record of 13-9, failing to qualify for the playoffs in the spring. Pilot also played for the Jin Air Green Wings in 2014.
