FC Seoul have agreed terms with Bolton for the sale of 21-year-old winger Lee Chung-yong.

The K-League club announced the deal on their official website shortly after Sunday night's 3-1 league victory over Gangwon FC.

A statement from the club read: "Although we are in the middle of the season, we have decided to agree to transfer Lee for the player's own good. We have agreed to the basics of the transfer with Bolton and will start fine-tuning the details of the contract starting today (Sunday)."

Reports in Seoul suggest the Premier League club are willing to pay around £2.1million for the winger, who has already made 15 appearances for the national team.

Lee scored and won a penalty in Seoul's 3-1 win at Gangwon FC in the K-League on Sunday, and afterwards told reporters he has decided to make the move to England.

"This could be my last match for Seoul and I am happy I could score," he said.

"I had considered the transfer options several times because we (FC Seoul) have a good chance to be number one in Asia and Korea."

"But I wanted to accept this challenge and such chances don't come often."
