It's still a bit of a ways off but Chung-Yong Lee has said that he hopes to make his return for Bolton Wanderers in the later part of this season. While it doesn't seem to help the Wanderers in the short term, it will eventually be a massive boost with both he and Stuart Holden now aiming to be back in the latter stages of the campaign. Chungy has been in South Korea since the injury and while he will return to England next month, he says that being home has helped him a lot.

Hit the jump for what he had to say:

"My leg is getting better but it definitely helps being back in Korea because its home, being here will speed up my recovery.

My leg's not painful any more but I'm a lot happier here. The system of recovery is no different to the UK but I'm just a lot more comfortable here. I'm still having English lessons and I understand what people say - just not everything - but it's easier to communicate at home.

"I don't want to hurry. I want to be completely recovered. I want to play again but I must be 100 per cent right. That's the most important thing.

I don't want to rush but I will play again this season."

Chungy was originally hurt in Bolton's 3-1 friendly win against non-league Newport County and was slated to be out at least nine months.
