Former Celtic midfielder Ki Set For Injury Return Against The Hoops

Former Celtic midfielder Ki Sung-yueng is set to make his comeback from injury – against the Hoops.

The South Korea captain will line up for Swansea’s under-23s as they take on the Celts’ youth side in the Premier League International Cup.

It’ll be the former Parkhead star’s first action of the season after suffering a knee injury while on international duty back in June. That saw the playmaker ruled out for three months following surgery.

But on Saturday, he’ll make his long-awaited return against his old side – which he left for the Premier League in 2012 – at the Landore training ground.

Speaking of the player’s return from the sidelines, Swans boss Paul Clement said: “Ki is going to play in that game, which will be his first since the surgery, and that is good news for us.”

He won’t be the only senior player included in the Swansea side as Nathan Dyer joins him in the squad as he continues his recovery from a an injury lay-off.

Ki spent three seasons with Celtic after joining from FC Seoul in 2009.

The Korean won one top flight title and one Scottish Cup during his time at the club before joining the Swans for £7million.
