27. Chung-Yong Lee

Michael Steele
Squad Number: 27
Position: Midfielder
Joined: August 2009
Contract Expires: 30th June 2015

The Blue Dragon was one of Gary Megson's best signings for Bolton Wanderers. The Trotters purchased Chung-Yong Lee from FC Seoul for a reported fee of £2.2 million. Lee is an established South Korean international and is widely considered one of the best players for his country. He played a major role in South Korea's World Cup 2010 campaign while under contract at Bolton.

Lee made his Bolton debut immediately after signing for Bolton, coming on for Gavin McCann in an August, 2009 match against Sunderland. He quickly established himself as Wanderers' first-choice winger and his dynamic style on the flanks quickly turned Chung-Yong Lee into a fan favorite. Many supporters won't soon forget the Korean's game-winning header in front of the travelling fans at Birmingham City to seal an FA Cup semi-final spot for Bolton.

The winger missed almost the entire 2011/12 season for Bolton following a broken leg in a pre-season friendly at Newport County. The double break ruled Lee out until May when he returned in Bolton's penultimate match in the last few minutes. On his day, Chung-Yong Lee is one of Bolton's best players but he has found it somewhat difficult to get back to that high-flying form.
