Chiang Feng-chun finished her one-year contract with Chunghwa Telecom and is talking to two or three Chinese teams, Liberty Times reported. Chiang is expected to sign after the Asian Games in Guangzhou, China.

Chiang, one of the best players in Taiwan and widely seen as one of the best forwards in Asia, came out of retirement and joined Chunghwa Telecom. Her former employ Cathay Life, which has won 17 straight women's titles, announced Feb. 9 that it will pull out of the 2010 season over Chiang's controversy.
