CELTIC RAKE IN £36.3M

0

CELTIC have raked in a remarkable £36.3million in only three years after selling six stars to English clubs.
Adam Matthews became the latest Hoops ace to join the star trek across the border when he agreed a £2million move to Sunderland.
For the initial outlay of £7.4million, the SPFL champions can show a profit of £28.9million on the players.
Here is the money-spinning list:
KI SUNG-YUENG
The smooth South Korean midfielder arrived in a £2.1million deal from FC Seoul in 2009 and was sold to Swansea for £6million in the summer of 2012. Won all the domestic honours while with the Hoops and picked up a surprise Football League Cup medal with the Welsh outfit in season 2012/13.
VICTOR WANYAMA
The powerful Kenyan was another massive favourite with the fans after arriving for a bargain £900,000 from Belgian side Beerschot in 2008. Celtic couldn’t resist when Southampton slapped in a bid of £12million two years ago.
GARY HOOPER
Scored 82 goals in 138 games after arriving from Scunthorpe for £2.4million in 2010. The Englishman made it clear he wanted to return home and he got his wish when Norwich City paid £5.5million for his services in the summer of 2013..
JOE LEDLEY
The Welsh international midfielder arrived on a Bosman from Cardiff City in 2010. Celtic cashed in before he came to the end of his contract and sold him to Crystal Palace for £800,000 during the January 2014 transfer window.
FRASER FORSTER
The 6ft 7in goalkeeper – known as ‘The Wall’ to the Barcelona players and support after his displays against them – cost £2million from Newcastle in 2012 after an original two-year loan spell. Earned two England caps while at Parkhead to boost his transfer value. Southampton splashed £10million on the shotstopper last summer.
ADAM MATTHEWS
The Welsh international full-back agreed a pre-contract offer in February 2011 and arrived from Cardiff City for free in the summer. With the recent arrival of Saidy Janko from Manchester United, Ronny Deila had a surplus of right-sided defenders with Mikael Lustig and Darnell Fisher also competing for the No.2 shirt. Dick Advocaat’s £2million bid was too good to knock back.
