South Korea forward Ji Dong-won returning to Augsburg from Sunderland
AUGSBURG, Germany - South Korea forward Ji Dong-won has returned to Augsburg from Sunderland.
The Bundesliga club said Ji received a contract until the end of the season. Ji already played for Augsburg in the second half of last season on loan from Sunderland.
Kicker magazine reported later Thursday that Ji will move to Borussia Dortmund next season as a free agent.
Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski is leaving the club for Bayern Munich at the end of the season.
Ji told Augsburg's website he wanted a new club to get more playing time and earn a spot on South Korea's team for the World Cup in Brazil.
Ji said he had a "super time" at Augsburg last season and wanted to return.
He helped Augsburg avoid relegation. The club sits eighth in the Bundesliga and is one of the surprises of the season.
