It has been considered quite a coup for the little Derbyshire side but they have  made some impressive inroads in transfer market with signings of Mikel San Jose, Miraleum Sulejmani and Jack Cork.

The South Korean captain is excited with another opportunity to play in England.

Manager Glory Days was delighted in his praise of the South Korean International:

“He is a lad with great technical ability who can not only play on the wings, behind the striker but can also play as a deep lying play making role, this will give us great versatility and accessibility to employ him in many different roles.  Another important attribute  is that he’s a midfielder that can score goals which will be vital especially in our system.”

As a result, Karim Ait Fana, 24 who made 80 appearances for the Spireites moves in the opposite direction to Wolfsburg.

“We would like to thank Karim for all his services for the club and we wish him the best for the future, it’s a tough business but we had to make the difficult decision”
