According to a Sports Hochi article, Chang-Yong Lim would like to return to the Yakult Swallows next season because the team has grown on him.  But it seems there might be a problem: Lim apparently wants at least a three year deal and it isn't known just how many years the Swallows would be willing to go in order to keep him in Jingu.  That said, club director Katsutoshi Oki also told reporters the Swallows realize they'll probably need to consider offering Lim a multi-year deal in order to retain his services.

If Lim can't get the contract he's looking, his next option will likely be the Majors.
