Amid Rangers’ ongoing splurge in the transfer market, Celtic have signed goalkeeper Scott Bain and club-record signing Odsonne Edouard. Brendan Rodgers has been patient so far in the transfer window but Transfer Taverne fans, there’s one midfielder he should seriously consider singing.
After suffering a disappointing relegation campaign with Swansea, Ki Seung-Yeung will depart the club once his contract expires and he could be a superb addition to Rodgers’ squad.

A fan favourite and a classy midfielder, Ki is one of the players that has always impressed when he’s played in the Premier League.
The South Korean was a key player in Neil Lennon’s side and there could a space to fill in the current Celtic squad with Stuart Armstrong’s departure to Southampton. Celtic have Scott Brown, Callum McGregor and Olivier Ntcham in midfield but could well do with having a midfield technician in the middle of the park in Rodgers’ side.
The 29-year-old South Korean international made 137 appearances for Swansea in the Premier League after joining them from the hoops in 2012 and has been a consistent performer for the Swans ever since he broke into the first-team following a loan spell with West Brom.
Since then he has gone on to become one of the most underrated players in the league and is still in the prime of his career. On a potential free transfer, the Celtic man might not be the glamorous signing on the back of the Edouard transfer but after a tough World Cup with South Korea, a return to familiar surroundings might just be what Ki needs but also a key – pun intended – signing for Celtic.
What do you think Celtic fans, should Brendan Rodgers bring back Ki?
