Oh Hyeon-gyu (21, Suwon Samsung) is being courted by Celtic, a prestigious Scottish club.
Britain’s ‘Sky Sports’ said on the 20th (Korean time), “Celtic is speeding up their strategy to recruit Oh Hyun-kyu. A medical test is scheduled soon, and a transfer agreement will be reached.”
The ‘Scottish Express’ also said, “Giorgios Yakumakis, a Greek striker who plays for Celtic, is planning to transfer to the Japanese J-League or the US Major League Soccer (MLS). It seems that Oh Hyun-gyu will fill that void.”
Celtic is one of the most prestigious teams in the Scottish Premiership (SPL). It was founded in 1887 and celebrated its 135th anniversary this year. He has won the Scottish First Division title 52 times. This is equivalent to winning the league champion twice every five years. It is also a team that Cha Doo-ri and Ki Sung-yong played together in the past.
Currently, there are 6 Japanese national players. Strikers Maizen Maeda and Kyōgo Furuhashi, midfielders Leo Hatate, Tomoki Iwata and Yosuke Ideguchi, and defender Yuki Kobayashi are in the Scotland first team. In addition, there is Aaron Mooyi from Australia, and Joe Hart, who played with Son Heung-min at Tottenham.
Suwon Samsung preparing for the 2023 season is currently conducting the first battery training in Geoje, Gyeongsangnam-do. Oh Hyeon-gyu is also sweating heavily here. After that, they move to Jeju and start the second field training.
An official from Suwon said, “Celtic sent Oh Hyeon-kyu an offer four times. I paid a very high price for this offer. During the Lunar New Year holidays, whether or not to transfer Oh Hyun-gyu will be decided,” he said. 먹튀검증
