According to officials, the transfer fee is 3 million euros (approximately 4.2 billion won), which is higher than the originally announced 2.5 million euros. Salary ranges from 7 to 8 billion won.
Oh Hyun-kyu left for London, England, during the Lunar New Year holiday and issued a work permit. He then moved to Glasgow to complete his medical examination.
Oh Hyun-kyu’s move to Celtic is the result of his own will to advance into Europe. Celtic showed active interest by proposing a transfer to Suwon Samsung four times immediately after the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. However, Suwon Samsung hesitated to send Oh Hyun-gyu, the main player, without a suitable replacement. It is said that Oh Hyun-gyu did not bend his will and went to director Lee Byeong-gyu to actively express his will to advance into Europe.
In the end, Suwon Samsung also accepted Oh Hyun-gyu’s will and entered into negotiations with Celtic as interests such as transfer fees matched. Now, all negotiations on the transfer process have been completed and only the official announcement is left.
