South Korean star Ki Sung-yueng said yesterday he was honoured to be joining Swansea in the English Premier League. Ki was speaking at Incheon airport before flying to London to finalise his transfer from Scottish champions Celtic. "It's an honour to play in such a world-class league that I've only watched on television," the 23-year-old midfielder said. "The key is to make adjustments to my new environment as quickly as I can. If I can just play my game, I think I will have a good career there." Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins confirmed on Monday they had agreed a fee of around £6 million (HK$73.5 million) with Celtic. "We are currently holding discussions with the player and agent over personal terms," Jenkins said. Ki said he liked Swansea's playing style and would relish being coached by manager Michael Laudrup. "I would expect to learn a lot from him, since he was such an internationally renowned player," Ki said. Ki returned home from the London Olympics, where he helped South Korea win bronze, but did not join Celtic for the start of the Scottish season. If the deal is concluded, he would become the 10th South Korean to appear in the Premier League including three current players - former Manchester United star Park Ji-sung, now at QPR, Park Chu-young (Arsenal) and Ji Dong-won (Sunderland).
