One of the PSG summer additions, Korean midfielder Kang-In Lee, has been ruled out for the next few games of the French champions and through the first international break at least, as reported by Le Parisien.

Lee will not be available for the games against Lens next Saturday and he will also miss the ever-important matchup against Lyon on Sep. 3.

PSG issued a press release on Tuesday, revealing, "Due to a left quadriceps injury, Kang-In Lee will remain under medical care until the conclusion of the forthcoming international break."

The Ligue 1 calendar will pause from Sep. 4-15 to make room for the international fixtures scheduled in that window. On Sep. 7, the French national team will host Ireland at the Parc des Princes for the Euro 2024 qualifiers, followed by a friendly match against Germany in Dortmund.

Lee, who has started the first two Ligue 1 games of the season on both wings, will remain sidelined at least until September 17, coinciding with the game against Nice when the PSG return to action.

Depending on how the Korean recovers from his injury, he might also miss subsequent matches, including the first game of the next Champions League and the first one pertaining to the group stage of the competition, scheduled for either Sep. 19 or Sep. 20.
