Suree Sukha (Thai: สุรีย์ สุขะ, born July 27, 1982), is a Thai professional football player who plays as a Defender for Thai Leagues 1 club Ubon UMT United.

Suree’s twin younger brother Surat is also a footballer and plays for Buriram United as a Midfielder.

Suree formerly played for Manchester City F.C. following a two-week trial with fellow Thai internationals Kiatprawut Saiwaeo and Teerasil Dangda,. Sukha’s contract was set to be signed by the English club, but his work permit application was denied by the British Home Office as players originating from countries outside of the FIFA-ranked top 70 do not qualify according to Home Office guidelines. He also failed to pass on a clause requiring players to have participated in 75% of their country’s internationals in the two years previous to the submission of the permit application.

After a long wait, Sukha finally signed for Manchester City along with fellow Thai internationals and City trialists Kiatprawut Saiwaeo and Teerasil Dangda on 16 November 2007, on the same day that his former club, Chonburi, announced a partnership agreement with his new club.

On 9 May 2008, Sukha was quoted in the Bangkok Post, as stating his future would lie in either China or Australia after his loan spell at Grasshoppers Zurich.
