Ji Dong-Won set to be Sunderland’s first summer signing

JI Dong-Won is poised to become Sunderland’s first new signing of the summer with the Korean’s move expected to be confirmed by the weekend.

The Black Cats are currently in transfer talks on a number of fronts, but although many of their targets have emerged early in the transfer window the club is still a long way off from agreeing deals in several cases.
