FORMER Celtic star Ki Sung-yueng has been linked to another cop probe — this time over a farmland deal.
Ki, 32, was questioned in South Korea over a purchase with his dad.
The pair are alleged to have broken the law after buying ten plots including farmland in 2015 and 2016.
Local media reports said they are suspected of falsifying documents on farming plans and turning land in Gwangju into a parking lot.
And it is said they made a huge profit after reselling plots to contractors of a private park and apartment complexes early this year.

Police said Ki had denied “property speculation” but an investigation was ongoing.
Buyers of farmland in South Korea must present a farming business proposal.
FC Seoul captain Ki is reported to have claimed he sent cash to his dad, who said the land was needed for a footie academy.
Ki wrote on Instagram that he was “truly sorry to have caused a stir” but said it happened “inadvertently”.
