Oh Celtic transfer exit update as Genk 'make increased offer' for Hoops striker

Genk have made an improved offer as they look to get a deal done for Celtic striker Oh, according to reports in Belgium.

The Belgian side were last week locked in talks with the Hoops who are ready to offload the 23-year-old 18 months after signing him from Suwon Bluewings in his homeland for £2.5million. It was reported last week that the Parkhead side were poised to make a profit of at least £1m.

However, no deal has yet been reached although it may be closer if reports in Belgium are to be believed. According to HLN Sport journalist Bob Faesen, Genk have increased their offer for the South Korea striker as they look to get a deal over the line.

An Oh exit would leave Kyogo as the only recognised senior striker at Celtic but manager Brendan Rodgers has made it clear he wants to bring back Adam Idah from Norwich after the Irishman's successful loan spell in which he scored a number of important goals - including a winner in the Scottish Cup final.

Oh has never been able to hold down a regular spot in the side despite managing to score 12 goals in 47 appearances, many of which were from the bench. He was signed as a replacement for Giorgos Giakoumakis who had also been unable to dislodge Kyogo as the starter.

He fanned the flames of the exit talk last week by sharing a picture training by himself with the caption "Next one", potentially teasing a move to his next club.
