Alan Desmond Lee (born 21 August 1978) is an Irish footballer who plays as a striker for League One club Huddersfield Town. He has also won ten caps for the Republic of Ireland.

He started his career with Aston Villa, also playing on loan at Torquay United and Port Vale. Following a season with Burnley, he signed with Rotherham United in 2000. He is considered something of a cult hero at the club, for whom he made 122 appearances for in all competitions over a three year spell. He was then bought by Cardiff City, and made almost 100 appearances for the Welsh side between 2003 and 2006. Then purchased by Ipswich Town, he made over 100 appearances for the club before earning a big money move to Crystal Palace. After returning from a loan spell at Norwich City, he wrote himself into the club's folklore by scoring in the final game of the 2009 10 season against Sheffield Wednesday, saving the Eagles from relegation and ultimately administration. Following these heroics he moved on to Huddersfield Town.
