Lee Chung-Yong set for scan

15 January 2015

Midfielder's Asia Cup campaign with Korea cut short

Lee Chung-Yong will return to Bolton Wanderers on Friday for assessment of an injury sustained whilst playing for Korea Republic during the Asia Cup.

Lee was forced from the field of play during Korea’s opening group game in Canberra against Oman earlier this week.

And the midfielder will miss the rest of the tournament in Australia as he flies back to Bolton for a scan and full assessment on the injury to his right leg.

"We'll welcome him back on Friday," Neil Lennon confirmed in his press conference. "It's a difficult one to judge right now, but we'll get him properly checked out and make a decision on him from there."
