Lee Chung-Yong is attracting the interest of Turkish side Tranzonspor, who are managed by former South Korea manager Senol Gunes.

Gunes handed Chung-Yong his international debut in 2008 and he could soon be reunited with the Wanderers midfielder, who has 12 months left to run on his contract at the Reebok Stadium.

A broken leg restricted Lee to just two substitute appearances for Bolton last season and he could be set for a fresh start, with Trabzonspor ready to offer the 23-year-old Europa League football next season.

"Lee Chung-Yong has always been like a son to me," Gunes said. "I will explore all the possibilities to sign him."

Chung-Yong has made 78 appearances for Bolton since his move from FC Seoul in 2009, scoring nine goals under the managerial reigns of Gary Megson and Owen Coyle.
