Bolton midfielder Lee Chung-yong will be out for a minimum of nine months after breaking his leg in Saturday's pre-season friendly at Newport.

The 23-year-old South Korea international underwent a successful operation after sustaining a double fracture of his lower right leg during Wanderers' 3-1 win in south Wales. He was carried off on a stretcher midway through the first half following a rash challenge from Tom Miller.

The club posted a statement on their website confirming he was recovering in hospital and was expected to be sidelined for the bulk of the 2011-12 campaign.
