Celtic’s Lennon hints at possible Ki sale

Celtic manager Neil Lennon has revealed that the club is pondering the sale of midfielder Ki Sung-yueng.

The 23-year old South Korean international, who is currently preparing for the Olympics, is attracting the attention of Russian club Rubin Kazan as well as German pair Bayer Leverkusen and Werder Bremen.

So far Celtic have turned down any proposals for Ki but Lennon has suggested that in the future the former FC Seoul could be offloaded much like Aiden McGeady’s £9.5million move to Spartak Moscow in 2010.

“He’s going to be linked with other clubs. He’s a good player,” said Lennon.

“We had interest from a Russian club but rebuffed their offer and we’ve not heard back since.

“He seems pretty happy here but everyone’s in the same boat — there will come a time when we have to sell because everyone has their price. Not just Ki but every player in the squad, like we did with Aiden McGeady.”
