Celtic have entered talks with signing target Cho Gue-Sung as they look to bring the South Korea forward to Glasgow.

STV News understands negotiations are ongoing with K-League club Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors over the potential transfer as the sides look to agree a deal.

Josip Juranovic, Giorgos Giakoumakis and Stephen Welsh have all been linked with a move away from Celtic Park in recent weeks.
