Interesting Korea move

Reports today claim that Boro have agreed a fee with Pohang Steelers for South Korean triallist Lee Dong-Gook. Lee has 22 goals in 64 appearances for his national side and is only awaiting a work permit to complete his move. He will be something of an unknown quantity - injury prevented him from appearing in the last 2 World Cup finals and a previous European sojourn with Werder Bremen proved unsuccessful. Lets hope the man they call the 'Lion King' can provide much needed back-up for Viduka and Yakubu. Either way, his signing should ensure enough shirt sales in Seoul to fund a replacement if he fails to make the grade.
