Celtic ‘close to signing Kwon Hyuk-kyu’, agree long-term deal…pay $1.4 billion transfer fee

Kwon Hyeok-gyu’s official signing with Celtic is imminent.

On the 17th, ‘Sky Sports’ reported that “Celtic have reached an agreement with Busan I-Park midfielder Kwon Hyuk-kyu to sign a long-term contract. The transfer fee is estimated to be £850,000 (about 1.4 billion won).”

“Celtic are in Japan for a pre-season tour, and Kwon will join them after completing his contract alongside Yang Hyun-joon.”

Kwon Hyuk-kyu was born in 2001 in Busan, South Korea, and played for the Busan IPark Youth. He made his professional debut in the semi-professional system as a high school senior.

Despite his 6-foot-3 frame, Kwon is known for his skill on the ball. In addition to being a defensive midfielder, he has proven to be an all-rounder who can also play as a striker, second line, flanker, and central defender.

With promise on the horizon, he also resolved his military service issues through Gimcheon Sangmu at a young age, increasing his chances of reaching the European stage. 토토사이트추천

It was in this situation that Celtic showed interest. The Hoops have already enjoyed the benefits of signing South Korean players such as Ki Sung-yueng, Cha Doo-ri, and recently Oh Hyun-gyu.

Celtic have been interested in Kwon since the end of the year and a deal is imminent.

Kwon would make history as the first player from the Busan youth ranks to go straight to Europe.

In addition to Kwon, Celtic will also have Yang Hyun-jun from Gangwon FC. Together with Oh Hyun-gyu, they will form a South Korean trio.
