South Korean striker Ji Dong-Won has now been a member of three clubs in just over 24 hours, and Sunderland’s lost out on a lot of money (in a sense).
The 22-year-old left Sunderland yesterday to join Augsburg on loan in the Bundesliga, but it’s a prelude to today’s news that Ji has reportedly reached an agreement to join Borussia Dortmund this summer.
Dong-Won scored twice in 24 appearances after transferring to Sunderland in 2011, with a loan spell to Augsburg in 2013 providing five goals in 17 matches.
Now-sacked Black Cats manager Paolo di Canio was confident he’d sign the player to a contract extension and turned down a 5 million pound transfer offer from German giants Dortmund over the summer.
But he didn’t play much before di Canio was fired and the hiring of Gus Poyet didn’t change much for the young striker. Now Sunderland’s lost an asset for nothing.
