Tadanari Lee secures work permit for Southampton
5:04pm Wednesday 11th January 2012 in Sport
SAINTS have secured a work permit for Japanese striker Tadanari Lee, clearing the way for him to join the club.
The 26-year-old international did not meet the criteria on the initial application, but was approved on appeal today.
Lee, who is currently back in Japan, will finalise his entry clearance papers - which allow him to enter the UK for work purposes - from the British Embassy and return to Southampton as soon as possible to sign his contract with Saints, the club confirmed in a statement issued this evening.
Lee is joining from top-flight J-League side Sanfrecce Hiroshima.
