Verona get Barcelona talent Lee

Hellas Verona have a deal to sign South Korean prodigy Lee Seung-Woo, but Barcelona keep a buy-back option for two years.

Sky Sport Italia claim the two clubs have agreed terms for the 19-year-old left-sided winger, who can also play in a more central attacking role.

This summer he made the step up from the youth academy to Barcelona B, having been with the Catalans since 2011.

Borussia Dortmund were interested too, but Verona appear to have booked a medical for tomorrow.

“I would like to continue my development to improve as a footballer,” he told Marca in July.

“If I play well for another club, then I might just go back to Barcelona later.”

As part of the agreement, Barcelona would retain a buy-back option on Lee for two-years.
