Professional football K League 1 Suwon Samsung striker Oh Hyun-gyu has been confirmed to go to Celtic in the Scottish Premier League (SPL).
An official from Suwon told ‘News 1’ on the 25th, “We have reached an agreement on the transfer of Hyungyu Oh with Celtic. It is at the stage where only the official announcement is left.” We are discussing it,” he said.
Celtic has expressed interest in Oh Hyun-gyu even 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
Afterwards, the two clubs finished all the detailed coordination of Oh Hyun-gyu’s transfer.
Oh Hyun-gyu flew to London, England during the Lunar New Year holiday and went through paperwork procedures such as issuing a work permit, and later completed all of the Celtic and medical tests in Glasgow. Now, only the announcement is left.
Meanwhile, Suwon plans to reinforce the position of the frontline striker, which will be created by Oh Hyun-gyu’s transfer, with additional recruitment. An official from Suwon said, “We will prepare a suitable recruitment so that Oh Hyun-gyu’s absence is not felt.”
Celtic is a prestigious and one of the strongest teams in the SPL tradition, leading the 2022-23 SPL with a record of 20 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss (61 points).
