Tigers may pounce for Lee

Last Updated: Sun, 15 Jun 2014 19:47

Hull City could be set to renew their interest in Lee Chung-Yong as the South Korea international looks for a move away from Bolton.

Tigers boss Steve Bruce first expressed an interest in the Trotters winger during the last transfer window, but no deal materialised and he remained at the Reebok Stadium for the rest of the campaign.

However, the player has made it clear he wants to leave the Lancashire club this summer and has set his heart on a return to the Premier League after two years outside of the top-flight with Wanderers.

Bolton are thought to be holding out for a fee in the region of £6m for the 25-year-old, who is currently away in Brazil with the South Korean national team at the World Cup.

Sunderland are also thought to be interest in acquiring his services which could spark a bidding war once he returns from the tournament in South America, particularly if he performs well this summer.

Lee is convinced he has what it takes to play in the Premier League again after battling back from a horrific double leg break three years ago, even though by his own admission, the demands of the Championship have sometimes not suited his technical ability.
