SUNDERLAND striker Ji Dong-won has joined German side FC Augsburg on a permanent deal for an undisclosed fee.

The South Korean striker spent five months on loan at Augsburg at the beginning of last year, where he scored five times in 17 appearances in the Bundesliga.

He returned to Wearside in the summer, but has failed to make an impact under Gus Poyet.

Ji joined Sunderland from Chunnam Dragons of the K-League in summer 2011 and made a total of 28 appearances for the Black Cats, scoring two goals.

Augsburg are currently eighth in the German top flight with 24 points from 17 games.
