Bolton's South Korean international winger Lee Chung-yong has signed a contract extension that is set to keep him at the club until 2013.

The 22-year-old joined from FC Seoul in summer 2009 and made 27 league starts in his debut season, scoring four goals, before playing in the World Cup.

"We have signed Lee on a contract extension," said manager Owen Coyle.

"It is great news for the club that such a talented player will be here for a long time."

Lee has started all 14 Premier League games for Bolton this season, scoring two goals, and follows team-mates Fabrice Muamba, Stuart Holden and Danny Ward in signing contract extensions.


"These extensions show we are looking to build a club," added Coyle.

"I am very forward thinking in trying to improve and help these young players on our journey.

"With the talent he has Lee is getting better day by day and I am thrilled he has signed up.

"What I am wary of is we do not burn him out as he has played two years without a break. He managed to have three weeks off after the World Cup, that's all."
