Hamburg Latest Club To Show Interest In Korean

Nigel Roddis

Whilst one Korean at Sunderland grabs all the acclaim, another appears to be headed for the exit.

Ji Dong-won is a January target for HSV Hamburg according to reports in Germany, as the Bundesliga club search for a replacement for the injured Maximilian Beister.

It is no huge shock to see Ji linked again with a move to Germany. It has been obvious for some time that it was his destination at some point this season following his superb spell with Augsburg last season.

Paolo Di Canio briefly looked to resurrect the his Sunderland career this summer, only to then appear to decide it was more fun to savage his confidence and publicly humiliate the Korean instead, and all after going on record taking full responsibility for turning down a bumper summer offer from Borussia Dortmund. Ah Paolo, you total illogical madman.

With Ji sure to be eying up regular first team football to protect his world cup chances, a move surely looks likely this month. Like just about everyone else, he has shown a big improvement when used since Gus Poyet's appointment, but it's still never going to happen for him on Wearside, is it.

Probably best for all parties to move him on now, take a little cash, and make room for someone else.
