Oh Hyeon-gyu completes Celtic transfer as South Korean striker pens 5 year deal to become fourth January signing

South Korean striker Oh Hyeon-gyu is the fourth January transfer window signing for Celtic after signing a five-year Parkhead contract.

The young frontman follows Yuki Kobayashi, Alistair Johnston and Tomoki Iwata as Ange Postecoglou braces for a Treble tilt. The 21-year-old international emerged as a target as the chances of signing fellow countryman and World Cup star Cho Gue-sung seemed to be getting smaller as he chose not to move during this period. Capped at full international level in November, Hyeon-gyu joins Suwon Samsung Bluewings in a deal reportedly worth around £3m after a protracted hunt for a new Scottish Premiership leaders frontman.

He was included in South Korea’s provisional squad for Qatar, but was dropped as Tottenham Hotspur star Son Heung-min recovered from injury. Celtic announced the striker’s arrest after he completed his medical and on the club’s website boss Ange Postecoglou said: “We are delighted to be bringing Oh to Celtic.

“He is a young, talented striker with great attributes and one who is ready to take the next stage in his career – a player who is hungry, eager to develop and achieve success. I have seen Oh for some time and he is the striker that i really wanted because i think he will fit in well in our squad really important thing i know he did everything he could to join us and his own perseverance has been crucial to this deal, so his determination to join Celtic has been very clear. We are very pleased to welcome him to the Club and look forward to working with him and incorporating him into our squad.”
