Kwon Hyuk-kyu (23), who moved from Busan I-Park in the K League 2 (division 2) to Celtic, a prestigious Scottish club, but failed to make his debut, will be loaned to other teams.
The Celtic club announced on the 13th (Korea Standard Time) through its Nuri communication network account, “Kwon Hyuk-kyu will be loaned to St. Mirren,” adding, “He will return to Celtic after the end of the season.”월카지노
Celtic did not announce a loan transfer on its official website, while St. Mirren expressed their expectations by disclosing the contract with Kwon Hyuk-kyu on its website.
St. Mirren is ranking fifth in the league. Celtic are currently ranking first in the league. “Kwon Hyuk-kyu gained experience by playing in many games in Korea, and Celtic recruited him by paying a lot of transfer fees,” coach Stephen Robinson said. “As Keanu Bakers, who is a member of the Australian national team, participated in the Asian Cup, we needed to reinforce midfield.”
“I believe that Kwon will help reinforce his capability,” he said. “I had a lot of conversations with Celtic manager Brandon Rogers about Kwon. I’m happy to be with Kwon.”
Kwon Hyuk-kyu is a promising player who was recognized for his ability to sign the first semi-professional contract in 2019 when he was a senior at Kaesong High School. Kwon Hyuk-kyu, who signed a formal contract with Busan I-Park’s promotion to the first division, was highly evaluated even after Busan was demoted to the second division. Kwon Hyuk-kyu, who is 190cm tall and weighs 77kg, joined Celtic last summer with Yang Hyun-joon from Gangwon FC.
Yang and Oh Hyun-kyu, who joined the club in January last year, frequently had chances to play after the opening of the 2023-2024 season, but Kwon failed to play. Rogers, who had used Kwon Hyuk-kyu in a practice game before the season, did not give him a chance to play after the opening of the season. He was lagging behind in competition to become a starting member with Conor McGregor, the same central midfielder position.
Competition is also expected to be inevitable in St. Mirren. If Keanu Backers returns after the Asian Cup, chances are high that he will regain his starting position. Attention is focusing on whether Kwon Hyuk-kyu will be able to maintain his sense of play by taking a chance to play in the new team. Kwon Hyuk-kyu is likely to join the national soccer team for the Paris Olympics this summer.
