Sky Sports are reporting this afternoon that Celtic have received a bid of £4m for the South Korean striker, who apparently is keen for the move to happen as he pursues first team football.

Anthony Joseph’s social media update gives some details on the transfer bid from Genk. “KRC Genk have made a bid worth around £4m for Celtic striker Hyeongyu Oh. It’s understood the clubs are in talks over the structure of the potential deal. Oh, 23, is believed to be keen on a move to find regular first team football.”

And journalists Graham Spiers have commented positively on how he thinks Oh’s career in the game is going to develop. He said: “I predict this guy will come good – even very good. There is definitely a player in Oh. He just couldn’t get going at Celtic.”
