Kang-in Lee is reportedly joining Mallorca, following interest from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The attacking midfielder is leaving Valencia, having accepted an offer from the Spanish outfit.

Lee has been with Valencia for a decade, but the club have decided to terminate his contract in order to free up a non-EU player space.

They had to do so in order to register new signing Marcos Andre.

It is thought that Lee, who watched Valencia in a box yesterday, will have a medical with his new club today.

Super Deporte report that Lee did actually have an offer on the table from Wolves.

But it seems the South Korean talent is keen to remain in Spain.

The news about Lee comes amid a claim from Tim Spiers that Wolves are not looking to add a new midfielder.

 

It is looking like Hwang Hee-chan will be coming in, but Spiers says in The Athletic that the only other addition Wolves may make is in defence.

The club have been linked with moves for Duje Caleta-Car and Sven Botman earlier this week.

An oversight from Wolves

Wolves could do with another attacking midfield option.

It is disappointing that Lee is heading to Mallorca, especially for nothing.

One wonders what kind of proposal Wolves made.

Clearly it was one Lee didn’t feel was worth accepting, and it looks like he’ll continue to play his football in La Liga.

It will remain to be seen if Wolves end up having regrets over Lee. It’s certainly a brilliant bit of business by Mallorca.
