Oh Hyun-gyu (22, Suwon) is a player guaranteed by Son Heung-min (31, Tottenham).
Oh Hyun-kyu’s move to Celtic is imminent, and the fans’ hope circuit is in full operation.
Britain’s ‘Sky Sports’ reported on the 23rd (Korean time), “Celtic of the Scottish Premier League (SPL) has agreed to sign striker Oh Hyun-kyu from Suwon Samsung. The deal is imminent.” The transfer fee is known to be 2.5 million pounds (3.8 billion won).
Oh Hyun-kyu, who made his professional debut by signing a semi-professional contract with Suwon in 2019, joined Sangmu relatively early and solved military problems. Oh Hyun-gyu scored 13 goals in 2021 and established himself as a key striker for Suwon Samsung.
As Oh Hyun-kyu’s move to Celtic is imminent, Son Heung-min’s past remarks are becoming a hot topic. Former Korean 스포츠토토 national team coach Paulo Bento took Oh Hyun-kyu to the World Cup in Qatar as a reserve player in preparation for Son Heung-min’s facial fracture. As Son Heung-min played normally, the opportunity did not return to Oh Hyun-kyu. Oh Hyun-gyu grew up by seeing and feeling the World Cup.
At the time, Son Heung-min said, “I was able to play in the World Cup because of Oh Hyun-kyu’s sacrifice. Although he is a young player, he tries to be useful to the team. He didn’t make the final list, but he’s a very important player for us,” he said, taking care of the youngest as captain.
Celtic fans said, “World class Son Heung-min recognized Oh Hyun-kyu. I am looking forward to Oh Hyeon-gyu’s performance,” he said, and is already welcoming his joining.
