Barcelona have confirmed that Seung-Woo Lee has left Barcelona to join Hellas Verona, although the club do have a buy-back option.

Lee has signed a four-year deal with the Italian side although Barcelona have confirmed they have a buy-back option that covers the first two seasons.

“FC Barcelona and Hellas Verona FC have reached an agreement for the transfer of player Seung-Woo Lee to the Italian club.

“The Korean has already passed the medical examination in Italy and tomorrow will be presented with his new club in Verona.

“FC Barcelona reserves a player repurchase option at the end of the next two seasons.”

There appeared no place at Barcelona B for Lee as the two non-EU spots had been taken by Anthony 'Choco' Lozano and Brazilian Vitinho.

Lee follows Jordi Mboula in leaving the club, the teenager having signed a five-year deal with Monaco earlier this summer.
