Professional League Of Legends eSports team 100 Thieves and Golden Guardians have reportedly reached a verbal agreement for the transfer of two Guardians players.
According to League Of Legends reporter Travis Gafford, attack damage carry (ADC) Victor “FBI” Huang and jungler Can “Closer” Çelik are set to be transferred from the Golden Guardians to 100 Thieves.
Both players are currently on contract with Golden Guardians until 2021, meaning 100 Thieves will have to buy out the players from the Guardians. The deal has yet to be made official, though, as the League Of Legends free agency market only opens later today (November 16).

The news comes just days after it was revealed that 100 Thieves had prematurely released Cody Sun from his contract, which was set to run until 2021. Sun, who was part of the team’s original lineup in 2018, is now a free agent as well.
FBI is expected to replace Cody Sun in the bottom lane for 100 Thieves, while Closer will take over as the jungler after Juan “Contractz” Garcia. It is currently unknown who Golden Guardians plans to replace FBI and Closer with.
