We catch up with loanee's progress in Germany.

Ji Dong-Won’s Augsburg will see their German Bundesliga fate decided on the final day of the season in the German top flight after a 3-0 defeat at UEFA Champions League finalists Bayern Munich on Saturday.

Three goals in the final 20 minutes from Thomas Muller, Xherdan Shaqiri and Luiz Gustavo ensured the points for the German champions who lifted the Bundesliga trophy in their final home league game of the season.

Ji’s side will now need to better Fortuna Dusseldorf’s result at Hannover on the final day when the South Korean’s side host already relegated Greuther Furth.

Augsburg could still go down automatically if they lose their game with Furth and Hoffenheim pull off a shock win at Borussia Dortmund.

The striker, who joined Sunderland in summer 2011, has made 16 appearances during his loan spell in Germany, scoring four goals.
