Hyunjun Yang: Celtic complete signing of South Korean attacker | Football News

Celtic have announced the signing of South Korean attacker Hyunjun Yang on a five-year deal.

The 21-year-old joins from Gangwon FC for a fee of around £2m.

He played in all but one of their 22 league games this season, 19 of them starts, with the side currently sitting second bottom of the table.

Yang was the K League young player of the year last season and made 69 appearances for the club after coming through their youth ranks.

The Under-23 South Korean international is Celtic’s third new signing of the summer transfer window.

Forward Mario Tilio has arrived from Melbourne City, Odin Thiago Holm has been secured from Valerenga, while Celtic have made fellow midfielder Tomoki Iwata a permanent signing after his loan from Yokohama F Marinos.

Celtic 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.”
