It's understood Reds centre-back Elsey, Melbourne Victory's Nick Ansell and an unnamed Brisbane Roar defender are on the list of relegated K-League 1 club Jeonnam Dragons, promoted side Busan I'Park and K-League 2 team Suwon FC.

Jeonnam is current home of former Melbourne Victory defender James Donachie, who is believed to be keen to leave after his side dropped down to K-League 2.

Another ex-Victory centre-half Adrian Leijer plies his trade for Suwon FC, but it isn't clear if his future is in question with the club seeking another Australian defender.
