The first overseas expansion after the World Cup is Oh Hyun-gyu… Wearing a Celtic uniform and stepping on the European stage

Oh Hyeon-gyu (22, Suwon Samsung), who played in the K-League, will step on the European stage wearing a Scottish Celtic uniform. The Suwon club said, “Both clubs have agreed to the transfer, and only an official announcement remains.” Oh Hyun-gyu left for England during the Lunar New Year holiday and went through the necessary procedures for transfer, such as a medical test. The transfer fee is known to be about 3 million euros (about 4 billion won).

Celtic has shown interest in Oh Hyun-kyu even before the World Cup in Qatar. Initially, Suwon was in a position that they could not send Oh Hyun-kyu, the team’s ace, but decided to send Oh Hyun-kyu to repeated love calls. He also had a strong desire to play on the European stage. 토토사이트

The local media also paid attention to the transfer process, saying, “Celtic, which was aiming to recruit Cho Kyu-seong (25, Jeonbuk), changed its direction to Oh Hyun-kyu.” Celtic fans also expressed their anticipation. The Celtic fan page ‘The Celtic Boys’ also highlighted Son Heung-min’s remarks, saying, “World-class Son Heung-min recognized Oh Hyun-gyu.” Son Heung-min praised Oh Hyun-kyu, saying, “I think he played the most important role among the players who participated in the World Cup.”

Oh Hyun-gyu, wearing a Suwon Samsung uniform in 2019, joined Sangmu early the following year and solved the military service problem. After he was discharged, he returned to Suwon and scored 13 goals and 3 assists last season. He even saved the team from the brink of relegation by scoring the winning goal in extra time in the promotion play-off. Oh Hyun-gyu plans to join the team immediately after joining Celtic without returning to Korea.
