Celtic boss sad to see Ki leave for Swansea

Celtic manager Neil Lennon has revealed that Ki Sung-yueng is set to depart for another club.

The Bhoys boss admits it is sad to see the South Korean midfielder leave although he stopped short of naming the club he is set to join, which is believed to be Swansea City.

"We are in advanced discussions with a club at the minute and we are hoping the deal will go through," he said ahead of tomorrow's Champions League qualifier with Swedish club Helsingborgs.

"I am not at liberty to say (if it's Swansea) but there may be interest from other clubs as well.

"He is not here, we have given him a bit of extra time because he has a lot to think about.

"He has only 15 months left on his contract and we feel it is a good offer and good business on our side.

"It is unfortunate to lose a quality player but that has been our strategy at the club for the last two or three years, cultivate these players and eventually move them on if they want to go."
