Oh Hyun-gyu (22), who wore the uniform of the Korean professional soccer team Suwon Samsung (hereafter referred to as Suwon) until last season, has confirmed his transfer to Celtic, a prestigious Scottish club. Only an official announcement remains.
An official from Suwon said in a phone call with OSEN on the 25th, “We decided to make an official announcement of Oh Hyun-kyu’s news with Celtic (Korean time) in the late afternoon today.”
During the Lunar New Year holiday, Oh Hyun-gyu went through the document process for transfer in London, England. After that, he moved to Glasgow, Scotland, and completed the medical test without any problems.
Since early December, Celtic has submitted several transfer proposals to Suwon to recruit Oh Hyun-gyu. Suwon took a firm stance of “cannot send” immediately after receiving the first offer.
On the 2nd, an official from Suwon said, “I received a transfer letter, but I am not negotiating. Because Oh Hyun-gyu will accompany Suwon this year,” he said with strength. At the time, the transfer fee proposed by Celtic was known to be around 2 million euros (2.7 billion won). It was an amount that could not be ignored, but Suwon was in a position to protect Oh Hyun-gyu.
After a fierce relegation fight in the previous season, Suwon, who succeeded in staying dramatically, is preparing for this season with the goal of ‘rebuilding the famous family’. If main striker Oh Hyeon-kyu leaves, there will be a significant blow.
Oh Hyun-kyu played in 36 league games last season and scored the most goals (13 goals) in the team, quickly emerging as an indispensable presence in Suwon. I also went to the 2022 Qatar World Cup as a ‘preliminary member’ in the eyes of coach Paulo Bento. 헤라카지노
Celtic recognized Oh Hyeon-kyu and courted him persistently. Suwon rejected the proposal several times, saying, “I will accompany Oh Hyun-gyu for the 2023 season as well,” but he stuck to an active stance even while raising the transfer fee.
Celtic sent love calls to Oh Hyun-gyu four or five times and eventually succeeded in recruiting him. It is known that Oh Hyun-kyu paid 3 million euros (about 4 billion won) for the final transfer fee.
An official from Suwon said on the same day, “Oh Hyun-gyu, who moved to Celtic, joins the team right away because it is in the middle of the season.” I know he left the words, ‘I’m sorry I went to Scotland without being able to greet his colleagues in person.’”
After sending Oh Hyun-gyu away, Su-won is looking for a replacement.
