Sunderland capture Dong-won

Sunderland have announced the capture of Dong-won at the Stadium of Light.The 20-year-old striker, who has scored six goals in 11 international appearances, moves from Chunnam Dragons in a three-year deal with the fee undisclosed..Sunderland manager Steve Bruce is delighted to land another of his targets and is convinced Dong-won will adapt well to the pace of the Premier League.

"The boy has been in fantastic form for both club and country and he was one of South Korea's stand-out performers at the Asian Cup, so we are delighted to bring him to Sunderland," Bruce said.

"The Barclays Premier League is very different to the K-League, so there is hard work ahead, but you just have to look at players like Park Ji-sung and Lee Chung-yong to see how well Korean players are adapting to its pace and physicality."
