Newcastle Paper Claims Celtic Want to Re-Sign Ki Sung-yueng But Can’t Afford His Wages

Celtic are interested in re-signing midfielder Ki Sung-yueng this month but can’t afford his wages – according to reports emanating from Newcastle today.

The Hoops are known to be in the market to strengthen in several different areas before the transfer window slams shut on February 1, and Neil Lennon’s side going after a midfielder seems like a reasonable assumption.

And, according to the Newcastle Chronicle, the Scottish Champions have made enquiries about the availability of the South Korean international, who played for Celtic across a three-year spell between 2009 and 2012.

But his weekly wage packet is seemingly a stumbling-block, with the midfield schemer reportedly open to a return to Glasgow.

The 30-year-old initially left Celtic for Swansea City, who were then flying high in the Premier League, and has since had spells at Sunderland and now Newcastle – where he has made just three Premier League appearances this season.

Ki will know his next transfer could be his last big move in European football – so can you see him coming back to Celtic this month?

And is he the kind of player Lennon requires?
