Premier League outfit keen on making a move for out of favour Crystal Palace attacker

Newly promoted Burnley are currently considering a move for Lee Chung-Yong, according to reports from the Croydon Advertiser

Crystal Palace managed to secure the services of Lee Chung-Yong from Bolton Wanderers during the January transfer window of 2015 and many believed at the time that the South Korean international would be a quality signing for the Trotters.

As it has turned out though, Lee has proven to be a huge flop at Selhurst Park so far and has really struggled to make regular appearances for the first team.

To further dent his chances of earning minutes on the pitch, Lee accused manager Alan Pardew of being ‘too hot tempered in matches’ and added that the 54-year-old forgets how many substitutes he has used.

Lee likely for Palace exit

Such comments earned Lee a hefty fine and many now believe that the 28-year-old is certain to be leaving Selhurst Park this summer.

Despite Lee’s struggles at Palace, a number of clubs are interested in securing the services of the attacker and now according to reports emerging from Croydon Advertiser, Burnley are currently considering a swoop.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche is looking to strengthen his ranks following the Clarets’ promotion back into the Premier League and the 45-year-old is hopeful of luring Lee to Turf Moor.
