Reports: Ji Not Signing For Hamburg

Some spurious reports last night claimed that Ji Dong-Won was in Hamburg awaiting a move to the Bundesliga side, it appears this morning that that isn't the case.

Paolo Di Canio recently spoke out in support of the much maligned attacker after a series of dismal displays which saw the Stadium Of Light crowd get on his back.

Widespread reports came out last night claiming he was having a medical at Hamburg SV ahead of a £4m move, although it has been confirmed in Korea this morning that he is currently at the Paju National Football Centre with his international teammates ahead of games against Haiti and Croatia this international weekend.

It's also claimed in those reports that Ji himself has denied he ever had a medical with Hamburg, and perhaps the unclear photographs of him at an airport last night were merely him en route to Korea, or indeed perhaps someone else entirely.

Many fans do hope for him to move on after a series of underwhelming performances, and if he does stay then he'll have to up his game significantly to win round the support of the fans.
