Transfer Latest – Celtic confirm signing of Hyun-Jun Yang

Celtic today completed the signing of highly rated South Korean winger Hyun-Jun Yang.

It has been a rather drawn out saga due to the stance of his now former club Gangwon FC who refused his wishes to move, but finally buckled when pressure by the player made the move come to fruition.

So Hyun-Jun Yang is finally a confirmed Celtic player and can quickly get to work with his new teammates and be ready for the upcoming season. He’s something of an unknown quantity, but is highly regarded in his homeland and by all accounts is a very talented player.

We have a good record of purchasing decent players in that part of the world, it’s a market we know well. Let’s hope Hyun-Jun Yang is another success. Welcome to Celtic Hyun-Jun Yang.

Speaking to the official Celtic FC website, manager Brendan Rodgers said: “We’re delighted to bring Yang to the club and I’m sure he’s going to be another great addition to the squad.

‘He’s a player that we’ve looked at closely and who we think will further enhance our attacking options which, of course, already include his fellow countryman Oh.’

“He’s an exciting player who was the Young Player of the Year in South Korea last season, which is an indication of his quality, and I’m sure he’ll be looking forward to having a big impact at the club.

“It’s also clear that he was very keen to make this move to Celtic so I know he’ll be delighted that everything has now been agreed and we’re really looking forward to working with him.”

Yang said: “I’m very pleased to come to Celtic and I’m looking forward to meeting my new team-mates and to begin training with them. This is a move that I wanted to make and so it is great to be here in Scotland now as a Celtic player.

“I have spoken to Hyeongyu Oh who has already told me great things about the club and its supporters, so I can’t wait to meet them and play in front of them.”

Welcome to Celtic Hyun-Jun Yang.
