Former Sunderland striker Ji Dong-won will eventually join Borussia Dortmund this year.

The Daily Mail says Ji signed for Augsburg yesterday in a £500,000 deal but the South Korea man is merely taking a detour to Dortmund.

The 22-year-old played for Augsburg on loan in the first half of last year and helped them avoid relegation and has joined them until the end of the season.

He will sign a four-year contract at Dortmund in the summer, and BVB sporting director Michael Zorc said: "We are delighted that we can sign this talented player on a free for next season."
