It has already been a rather busy summer at Celtic thus far.

Portuguese winger Jota recently departed the club, although the arrivals of Odin Thiago Holm and Marco Tilio, combined with a new contract for Kyogo, have somewhat softened the blow.

Two in the door already, it is certain Celtic will add more before the end of August and one of those could be South Korean winger Hyun-jun Yang.

According to Sky Sports journalist Anthony Joseph on Twitter, the Hoops are stepping up their efforts to sign the Gangwon FC wide man.

It is said that an approach was made last month, but the club are not willing to sell the player midway through the season.

Nevertheless, Yang wants the move and has told club chiefs this.

It will be interesting to see how this situation unfolds.

Yang clearly wants to come to Celtic, although his current club continually denying him the opportunity to do so is rather harsh and will lead to more frustration in the player.

If he does eventually depart his homeland, though, Celtic will be getting one of the hottest prospects in South Korea to add to their ranks.


  1. Yang’s current club denying him the opportunity to come to Celtic is not harsh at all. He is contracted to them and they are quite within their rights to make him see out his contract if they so wish. Some Celtic fans did not like it when the current manager abandoned the club, to go to Leicester in 2019. Players and managers have got to realize that football is not just about them and their perceived ambitions, the clubs have ambitions of their own too.
