Sunderland complete signing of Ji from Chunnam Dragons

Sunderland have made their second signing in two days by completing a deal for Ji Dong-won.

The 20-year old South Korea international striker has signed a three-year deal, joining the Black Cats from K-League club Chunnam Dragons.

Sunderland boss Steve Bruce was delighted to welcome Ji to the Stadium of Light but indicated that fans may have to be patient.

"The boy has been in fantastic form for both club and country as he was one of South Korea's stand-out performers at the Asian Cup, so we are delighted to bring him to Sunderland," he said.

"The Premier League is very different to the K-League so there is hard work ahead.

"But you just have to look at players like Park Ji-sung Park and Lee Chung-yong to see how well Korean players are adapting to its pace and physicality."
