Team SoloMid have signed former Phoenix1 jungler Mike "MikeYeung" Yeung as their starting jungler for the 2018 season.

MikeYeung recieved the 2017 NA LCS Rookie of the Year award after a rocky split with P1. The team placed last in the regular season with a 4-14 record, but staved off relegation with a 3-0 win over eUnited.

However, MiekYeung was instrumental in the team's few upset wins that season. He finished the split with a 3.23 KDA, the second highest kills among junglers in the league and the third-highest kill participation percentage of any jungler.

"I'm really excited for this new opportunity with TSM," MikeYeung said in TSM's press release. "I believe that working with a top team like TSM will allow me to reach my ambitious goal of becoming an undisputed world class jungler."

According to TSM's press release, the organization still has their 2017 starting jungler Dennis "Svenskeren" Johnsen under contract.
