Transfer news: London clubs look set to miss out on Ki Sung-Yueng

Celtic star Ki Sung-Yueng looks set to join Swansea after they had a bid of around £6million accepted.

The South Korea international had been tracked by a host of Premier League clubs, including London trio Fulham, Arsenal and QPR.

But the Olympic bronze medallist is now close to joining up with new Swansea boss Michael Laudrup in Wales.

Celtic boss Neil Lennon will be sad to see the midfielder leave, but accepts that it’s good business.

“It will be unfortunate to lose a talented player, but that’s been our strategy at the club now for the last two or three years,” said Lennon.

“We cultivate players then move them on.

“We feel it’s good business.”
