      Volleyball star Kim Yeon-koung has received an offer from a Chinese team as her contract with her current Turkish club nears an end, according to media reports.

      Volleyball news website World of Volley said Thursday that Beijing BAIC Motor in the Chinese Volleyball Super League has expressed an interest in recruiting Kim of Eczacıbaşı VitrA. Her two-year deal with the Turkish club is set to expire in May.

      Kim's agency declined to confirm the report, saying, "We cannot say anything about her next move at this moment as many leagues around the world are going through a tough time due to the coronavirus epidemic."

      Kim played in the Chinese league with Shanghai Guohua Life in the 2017-18 season.

      She returned to Seoul on Wednesday after matches in Turkey were canceled due to the epidemic.
