Chung-Yong Lee: I'm ready to play for Crystal Palace

The Crystal Palace Eagle

Crystal Palace winger Chung-Yong Lee is hoping to make his debut against Hull City at the weekend.

Crystal Palace’s January signing Chung-Yong Lee has told the club's official website of his desire to play against Hull City this weekend.

Lee is still waiting to make his debut for Palace, as injury has curtailed his process at Selhurst Park to date, but the South Korean says he is available for selection now.

Lee played an hour for Palace's development side against Charlton Athletic on Tuesday and says he is feeling good after getting some much-needed minutes and match-sharpness under his belt.

"I really enjoyed it. I got 60 minutes and I'm looking for finishing a game," he said. "I feel good so I hope to play against Hull City."

Lee scored in Palace's game against Charlton, which they drew 2-2, and his performance caught the eye.

The former Bolton Wanderers man could have been forgiven for looking rusty after spending so long out with a broken leg, but he was actually the standout performer on the pitch.

It means that he is likely to have gone straight into Alan Pardew's thinking for the weekend, and Lee is certainly hoping to play a part.

The Eagles have little left to play for this season, so it could be a good chance for him to acclimatise to his new surroundings in an unpressurised environment before looking to kick on over the summer and into the 2015/16 campaign.
