Augsburg deny interest in taking Sunderland's Ji back to Germany

German outfit Augsburg are holding back on the prospect of bringing Sunderland striker Ji Dong-won back to the club after last season’s successful loan spell, writes Sunderland Echo.

Ji netted five goals in 17 appearances last season during the loan spell at the German club, but has failed to make a single appearance at the Stadium of Light since Gus Poyet’s arrival.


The South Korean is moving into the final six months of his contract at the Black Cats, but Augsburg manager Stefan Reuter denies the interest from his side.


“It is no secret that Ji had a great season playing for Augsburg. But I do not want to talk so much about new players. Basically, we are keeping our eyes and ears open, but I’m not a fan of transfers during the winter break,” he said.


Interest in the 22-year-old is thought to be high in Germany, with VfB Stuttgart, SC Freiburg and Borrusia Monchengladbach showing curiosity in the striker, and he reportedly could have sealed a move to Borussia Dortmund last season for £5 million, but the bid was rejected by Sunderland.


Ji previously played for K League-side Chunnam Dragons, where he scored 10 goals in 33 appearances before Sunderland signed the striker in 2011.


Ji has scored eight goals in 26 appearances for South Korea and has represented his country at Under-20 and Under-23 level.
