St Mirren sign Celtic midfielder Hyeokkyu Kwon on loan until the end of the season

St Mirren FC has announced the loan signing of Hyeokkyu Kwon until the end of the season, subject to clearance.

The Korean midfielder joins Saints on temporary transfer for the remainder of the campaign from cinch Premiership league leaders Celtic.

Hyeokkyu, 22 joined Celtic in July after agreeing a five-year-deal to move from Busan I-Park in his home country.

Stephen Robinson said: “He’s a player that comes highly recommended. Celtic were very keen for him to come to us which is a complement to the coaching staff here.

“He’s played a lot of games in South Korea and was signed by Celtic for big money. It was an area we needed to strengthen in midfield and with Keanu away at the Asian Cup it was important that we strengthened there.

“We believe that he [Hyeokkyu] will come in and add that strength. He breaks up play really well and he can start play really well for us as well. I’ve had some good conversations with Brendan Rodgers about him and we’re delighted to have him in.”
