Oh Hyun-kyu confirmed for Celtic… Suwon club “We are coordinating the official announcement time with Celtic”
The transfer of striker Oh Hyun-gyu from Suwon Samsung in the professional football K League 1 to Celtic in the Scottish Premier League (SPL) has been confirmed.
An official from Suwon told ‘News 1’ on the 25th, “We have reached an agreement on the transfer of Celtic and Hyungyu Oh. The official announcement is just ahead,” and “both clubs agreed to announce at the same time. As there is a time difference, when We are discussing whether or not to announce it,” he explained.
Celtic had expressed interest in Oh Hyun-gyu before the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, and was active enough to propose a transfer to Suwon four times right after the World Cup.
Suwon initially designated Oh Hyeon-kyu as an ‘irreplaceable player’ and rejected Celtic’s offer several times. However, both transfer fees and player salaries have recently jumped to a level that is difficult for the club to throw out, so they have changed their direction and entered into negotiations with a positive attitude.
According to a Suwon official, Celtic’s conditions for recruiting Oh Hyun-kyu are more than 2.5 million euros (about 3.5 billion won) in transfer fee and an annual salary that is more than 10 times the amount he is currently receiving in the K-League. 토토사이트
