FOOTBALL SCOTLAND 🔵 Oh Celtic transfer exit talks ‘begin’ as 2 others also attract approaches

Genk are reportedly ready to offer Oh Hyeon-gyu a route out of Celtic.

South Korean international Oh, 23, has fallen completely out of favour under Brendan Rodgers and is one of several fringe players who will be shipped out this summer. The Daily Record reports that Genk are keen to take him to Belgium and have already begun talks with the Scottish champions, although it’s unclear whether Oh would leave on loan or a permanent deal.

Oh scored five goals last season but was bombed out following the January arrival of Adam Idah, last featuring in February’s 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock. Brendan Rodgers is keen to sign Idah on a permanent deal from Norwich City and could even add another forward to his frontline, which would push Oh even further down the pecking order, with Kyogo the first-choice striker.

Now, just 18 months after joining in a £2.5million deal from Suwon Samsung Bluewings, Oh looks set to leave Parkhead as Rodgers frees up space in his squad for new signings. Celts are also keen to offload Swedish outcast Gustaf Lagerbielke and it’s understood long-term admirers Leece have reignited their interest in the defender by making an approach.

Meanwhile, Leece’s Italian rivals Parma are also said to be in talks with Celts over a £2m deal for Sead Haksabanovic, who has been deemed surplus to requirements after an underwhelming season-long loan spell at Stoke City. Others including Ben Siegrist, Yuki Kobayashi and James McCarthy have also been told to find new clubs.
