Lee Young-Pyo has warned us about Reading's potential dangerman Seol Ki-Hyeon - and as his international room mate, he should know!

The midfelder, capped 65 times by South Korea, has made an impressive start to life in the Premiership at Reading, scoring key goals against Sheffield United and a 30-yard piledriver to take maximum points at West Ham.

Seol kicked-off his career in European football with spells at Royal Antwerp and Anderlecht in Belgium before joining Wolves in 2004-05. He hooked up with Championship champions Reading for their assault on the Premiership this season.

"He's a great player and I know him very well, he's my room mate when we join up with South Korea," said Young-Pyo, who returned from injury against Port Vale on Wednesday.

"Just last week we got together for dinner because it was his daughter's birthday.

"He's had a great start to his first season in the Premiership. He's a very dangerous player and we will have to be aware of him in the match, he has a powerful shot with either the left or right foot, he's a great crosser of the ball, physically strong and fast.

"His start is no surprise to me and I think he will get better match by match. We will have to watch him."
