Kangin Lee promoted to Valencia first team squad

Kangin Lee has been promoted to the first team squad of Valencia.

The 17-year-old had signed a contract extension back in July, which would have seen his stay with the club extend to June 2022 with a club option for an additional year.

However, such has been his incredible performances with Valencia Mestalla, as well as his cameos with the senior team, that Los Che's hierarchy have moved to place the South Korean in the first team on a permanent basis.

Wednesday's announcement has made clear that Lee will wear the number 16 shirt, whilst the buyout clause in his new contract stands at €80m.
