Celtic look set to plunder the Asian market once again with an ambitious double signing coup.

Gangwon winger Yang Hyun-jun is all set to seal a £2 million transfer move to Celtic.

Yang has been linked with a switch to Parkhead all summer and has never hidden his desire to force the transfer through during this window.

The 21-year-old appears to have had his wishes granted as Korean media outlet Sports Chosun is reporting that Yang will become a Celtic player in a deal worth €2.5m.

The winger had been linked with a move to the MLS last summer but remained at Gangwon having been promised he'd be assisted in making a move to Europe.

However, Gangwon initially failed to sanction the deal because they were fighting to stave off relegation.

Yang said: “If the transfer fee isn’t enough, I’ll even give my own salary. I want to go to Celtic this summer. I hope Gangwon will allow me to transfer.

"I really want to go out this time. My colleagues and seniors from other teams also tell me to go to Europe, I don’t think about staying in Gangwon right now.”

Brendan Rodgers side has also been credited with an interest in Busan I-Park midfielder Kwon Hyeok-kyu having been previously touted for a transfer switch to Paradise last year.

Meanwhile, Rodgers spoke to the media as he updated the Celtic faithful on the latest injury situation at Parkhead.

Cameron Carter-Vickers remains on course to start the Scottish Premiership season against Ross County at Celtic Park on August 5.

However, Alistair Johnston will miss between six and eight weeks of the campaign after having surgery on his ankle and Mikey Johnston will also be on the sidelines for three months due to a back problem.

New signing 21-year-old winger Marco Tilio from Melbourne City arrived in Glasgow with an existing issue acquired on international duty with Australia which rules him out for the big kick-off but Rodgers insists it is nothing to worry about.

Rodgers said: "Marco will be out for a few weeks. He had an issue when we signed him and we knew of it. He will miss the start of the season as he got injured playing for Australia. We knew he would miss the first couple of months of the season but he's an exciting winger who has done well. He fits the profile and when he settles in, he will do very well.”
