Update: Since the time of publication, Immortals have confirmed the acquisition of Cody "Massacre" Sun and Lee "Flame" Ho-jong.

North American League of Legends team Immortals have come to terms and intend to sign agreements with former Longzhu Gaming top laner Lee "Flame" Ho-jong and former Dream Team AD carry Cody "Massacre" Sun, sources close to the players and the team tell ESPN.

Both players will play with Immortals at Intel Extreme Masters Gyeonggi on Dec. 16-18 in Gyeonggi, South Korea.

Flame and Massacre join the team after it re-signed mid laner Eugene "Pobelter" Park to a two-year agreement and signed former Team Liquid jungler Joshua "Dardoch" Hartnett. The team's support position, which was left vacant following the departure of Adrian "Adrian" Ma, is currently still up in the air, according to sources, with no selections finalized.

The deal with Flame comes after Immortals released top laner Heo "Huni" Seung-hoon from his contract, per his request, as he received and later accepted an offer from SK Telecom T1. Meanwhile, Massacre will replace AD carry Jason "WildTurtle" Tran, who left the team on Monday.

The team is currently bootcamping in South Korea as it prepares for Gyeonggi and the 2017 League Championship Series season, which begins in January. At Gyeonggi, the team will face 2016 World Championship runner-up Samsung Galaxy, as well as Royal Never Give Up, Giants Gaming, J Team, Kongdoo Monster, Dark Passage and Vega Squadron.

Immortals did not respond to a request for comment by the time of publication.
