Cardiff in the frame for South Korean winger Kim

Championship Cardiff are leading the race to sign South Korea international Kim Bo-Kyung, according to the Cerezo Osaka winger's agent. Lee Yeung Joong, chief executive of the player's agency Ivan Sports, has confirmed the Bluebirds are in pole position for the 22 year olds signature, claiming negotiations are making "satisfactory progress".

Lee told Wales Online: "I am currently negotiating with some clubs in the UK, Germany and other countries.

"Those clubs include Cardiff City who have shown assertive attitudes for the transfer of Kim Bo-Kyung. Their manager Malky Mackay really likes Bo-Kyung and negotiations are progressing satisfactorily.

"The transfer fee being discussed is at a level of 3m.

"I also have contacted Celtic through my sub-contracted agent who is working in Scotland. But I have not received any official bid from Celtic.

"I will leave door open for his transfer and consider every possibility with clubs who have interests about Kim Bo-Kyung.

"I aim to complete his transfer matter before the Olympic tournament starts to avoid disruptive influences for Korea Under 23 national team."
