Lee Chung-Yong signs for Crystal Palace

Korea Republic international departs Macron Stadium after five-and-a-half seasons

Bolton Wanderers can announce that Lee Chung-Yong has signed for Premier League side Crystal Palace for an undisclosed fee.

The Korean international leaves Bolton after five-and-a-half-seasons, having made 195 appearances and scoring 20 goals.

He joined the club from FC Seoul in the summer of 2009 and has since gone on to represent Korea Republic in back-to-back World Cups as well as captain his nation on a number of occasions. 

One of the attacking midfielder’s most memorable moments for the Whites came against Birmingham City when he scored a late winner in a 3-2 FA Cup quarter final victory at St Andrew’s in 2011. 

The 26-year-old made his last appearance for the club against Huddersfield Town last month.

Bolton Wanderers would like to thank Lee for his contributions during his time at the club and wish him well in his future endeavours.
