Augsburg loan Dong-Won Ji

FC Augsburg have completed the signing of Dong-Won Ji on loan from English Premier League side Sunderland until the end of the season.

The South Korean striker has had a lack of opportunities in England and is now set to play the second half of the 2012-13 season in Germany.

Augsburg’s new sporting director, Stefan Reuter commented:

“It’s great that the transfer has gone through before the training restart. That way, Dong-Won Ji, who is a versatile forward, can take part in the entire preparation for the second half of the season.”

Dong-Won Ji won a bronze medal at the London Olympics last summer and is most well-known in England for scoring a dramatic stoppage time winner versus Manchester City last season.
