Steve Bruce has already been in touch about the Trotters' South Korean midfielder and his top scout Stan Ternent watched him in action at the weekend.

Hull are planning a raid for Bolton’s South Korean World Cup star Chung Yong Lee.

The Tigers' boss Steve Bruce has made an enquiry about wide-man Lee, and top scout Stan Ternant saw him score against Bournemouth in the Championship at the weekend.

The Trotters look certain to miss out on promotion back to the top flight for a second year running, so will cash in on the 25-year-old in the summer - but are looking for a big fee.

They demanded £6million for Lee in the January window - a sum that put off Premier League interest - but he will probably move for half that figure in the close-season.
