Celtic have announced the signing of 21-year-old South Korean winger Yang Hyun-jun.

The attacking player has signed a five-year contract to become Celtic’s third summer signing subject to international clearance.

Yang has joined from Gangwon after winning the K League’s young player of the year award last season.

He has been capped six times by the South Korean under-23 national team and scored nine times in 71 games for his club.

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.”

Yang joins countryman Hyeongyu Oh in Glasgow and revealed he spoke to his international teammate before making the move.

“I’m very pleased to come to Celtic and I’m looking forward to meeting my new teammates and to begin training with them,” he told the club’s website.

“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.”
