Lee Chun-soo signs for Feyenoord

August 31, 2007

SEOUL, Aug 31 (Reuters) - South Korea forward Lee Chun-soo has signed a four-year deal with Dutch club Feyenoord.

The diminutive winger would fly to the Netherlands on Friday afternoon to complete the 2 million euros ($2.7 million) deal, his Korean side Ulsan said in a statement.

Lee had been linked with a move to England's Premier League throughout the close season but a deal never materialised.

'We have come to the decision to let Lee Chun-soo move to Feyenoord for 2 million euros on a four-year contract,' Ulsan said in the statement.

'We have had these discussions for several months but the reason we hadn't been able to work out a deal was because Feyenoord had wanted a loan deal while Lee wanted a move.'

Lee had an unsuccessful stint in Spain after the 2002 World Cup but has been in red-hot form since his return to Korea. He won the K-League's MVP award in 2005 and was one of the few bright spots in the Koreans' 2006 World Cup campaign
