Southampton came in for his services in 1991 with a successful £350,000 bid. Lee's stay on the south coast was short-lived, however; after only twenty appearances he returned to the north-west with Bolton Wanderers in a one-month loan deal. In December 1992, Bolton made the move permanent in a £275,000 deal.
In 1997, he joined Wigan Athletic for £250,000, and he maintained his goalscoring touch, netting eleven goals during his three years with the Latics.
After retiring, he turned his hand to coaching and former club Wigan gave him his first opportunity on the ladder by naming him as their youth coach. He stayed in this position until 2008 when accepting the offer to return to Bolton as their Assistant Academy Director.
