DONE DEAL: Celta Vigo Complete Deal to Sign Arsenal Striker Park Chu-Young

South Korean joins newly promoted La Liga side.

Arsenal striker Park Chu-Young has officially completed a season long loan move to Celta Vigo according to the club’s official website.

The South Korean international arrived at the Emirates Stadium a year ago and was considered something of an odd acquisition as many deemed the 27 year old as not up to the task of plying his trade with a side of Arsenal’s size, and so it has proved.

Arsene Wenger must clearly not have been all that impressed with the former Monaco man, handing him just 12 minutes of Premier League football last term before seeking to sell the striker at the earliest opportunity.

The loan deal to Celta Vigo may well include a possible clause to sign the striker on a permanent basis and either way it would seem unlikely that Park Chu-Young will return to the North London club.

The signings of Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud will have further restricted Chu-Young’s involvement in first team affairs.
