Lee Kang-in nominated for European Golden Boy award

Lee Kang-in is one of many young East Asian stars looking to make a name from themselves in Europe. The Korean Lee is way on the way to doing just that as the Valencia midfielder was shortlisted for the European Golden Boy award. 

A big honour 

The Golden Boy award in Europe is an award that is given by sports journalists to a young footballer playing in Europe perceived to have been the most impressive during a calendar year. All nominees must be under the age of 21 and play in a European nation's top tier (thanks to wiki).

To then be shortlisted for such an award is a great honour and shows just how much Lee is impressing in Spain. Only last week the shortlist of 20 players was announced with the winner determined by a vote on the 16th December.
