TROT­TERS’ LEE A WANTED MAN

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS - By Stu­art Mar­shall

CRYS­TAL Palace are lining up a late £2m bid for Bolton’s South Korean in­ter­na­tional play­maker Lee ChungY­ong.

Bolton boss Neil Len­non has con­firmed the in­ter­est in mid­fielder Chung-Yong, 26, who could leave the club as a free agent at the end of the sea­son when he is out of con­tract.

Len­non said:“It was been well doc­u­mented that Crys­tal Palace have shown an in­ter­est but there has no bid for him yet.”

Ital­ian club Palermo are also thought to be in­ter­ested in the mid­fielder to re­place Juan Cuadrado if he leaves for Chelsea, while Stoke are also un­der­stood to be keen.

Chung-Yong is cur­rently side­lined by a leg in­jury that he suf­fered while play­ing at the Asia Cup but he should be back in ac­tion next week.

“It would be great to have him avail­able for the FA Cup re­play against Liver­pool but I can’t pre­dict what will hap­pen be­fore then,” added Len­non.
