Busan IPark give thanks to incoming Celtic star Kwon Hyeok-kyu

Busan IPark have given their thanks to incoming Celtic star, Kwon Hyeok-kyu after his final game for the club against Seongnam in the K-League 2 today. The defensive midfielder will link up with his new teammates in Japan as the club heads out on a pre-season tour of Kyogo Furuhashi, Daizen Maeda and Reo Hatate’s homeland next week.

Along with his countryman, Yang Hyun-jun from Gangwon FC, Kwon will become Celtic’s fourth signing of the summer transfer window so far (although we retained the services of loan star Tomoki Iwata too beforehand). The pair have been scouted extensively by Celtic and the new-look recruitment team have decided to pull the trigger at the behest of Brendan Rodgers.

The big man will be hoping he can come in and have an instant impact at the club and help the team in their quest for more domestic glory, whilst having another crack at UEFA Champions League group stage football this season.

The Celts weren’t clinical enough last year in the top European competition and were punished for it. We lacked a particular skillset in midfield which hopefully the new recruit Kwon will equip us with this time around.

He will no doubt be a massive loss to his current outfit and they sent him a classy message this afternoon on the eve of his last game in the colours of Busan IPark. Take a look at this posted by Seoul CSC via Twitter:

About Author

I'm a Garngad Bhoy through and through. My first ever Celtic game was a friendly against Italian side Parma at Celtic Park, in 2002. Currently a student of English Literature and Education at the University of Strathclyde for my sins. Favourite game would be a toss up between beating Manchester United with that Naka freekick, or the game against the Oldco when Hesselink scored in the dying seconds. I'm still convinced Cal Mac is wasted playing that far back.
