According to reports in Korea, Jung has already fled to France on Saturday and has agreed to Auxerre's contract offer, making himself the third Korean to currently ply his trade in Ligue 1. On 3 January 2010, Jung signed a two-and-a-half-year deal.[1][2] He made his AJ Auxerre debut against ES Wasquehal on 8 January 2011, coming on as substitute for the 62nd minutes in the 1–2 away defeat in the French Cup.[3] On 29 January 2011, Jung made his Ligue 1 debut for AJ Auxerre, coming on as a substitute in the 85th minute in the 2–0 defeat by SM Caen.[4]
