YP Lee Leaves Spurs- 8 Now Gone and Counting

Juande Ramos summer clearout has continued with South Korean left-back YP Lee leaving to join German giants Borussia Dortmund.

The Korean joined Spurs from PSV in 2005, costing the club £1.3mil. Whilst he has been bought by Dortmund for an ‘undisclosed fee’, it is likely Tottenham have made a small profit on the left back.

The player was a regular under former Spurs gaffer Martin Jol, but new boss Juande Ramos prefers Gareth Bale and Benoit Assou-Ekotto to the Korean.

Lee made 93 appearences for Tottenham Hotspur and helped the club to two 5th place finishes under Jol. Whilst he performed well as a squad player, he was never seen as a permanent solution to the left back problem at Spurs, and with Ramos also bringing in Gilberto last season, it seemed unlikely he would feature for Spurs this year.

Many Dortmund fans see YP Lee as the ideal replacement for Swiss defender Phillip Degan, who joined Liverpool in July.


YP Lee joins Pascal Chimbonda, Paul Robinson, Teemu Tainio, Robbie Keane, Anthony Gardner, Steed Malbranque and Younes Kaboul, who have all left White Hart lane this summer. Many also believe Dimitar Berbatov and KP Boateng could join those 8 players, with Berbatov linked to Manchester United, and KP Boateng linked to another German team, Hamburg.
