Sunderland manager Steve Bruce is excited by the potential of 20-year-old summer signing Ji Dong-won.[LNB] The Black Cats paid Chunnam Dragons a reported £2million for the striker's services and although Bruce is keen to bed him in gently, he is confident Dong-won will prove a hit in the Premier League.[LNB]Bruce said: "I've been impressed by him since he arrived here at Sunderland and eventually he will get his chance. There is a clamour from the supporters to see him play, of course there is.[LNB]"But I have to make sure we don't throw him in at the deep end until he is fully ready.[LNB]"In my experience, almost all players who come to England from abroad need a bit of time to get used to living here and learn the language. But when he gets his chance, he will be fine.[LNB]"Ji plays up front with the lad from Arsenal, Park Chu-Young. In his country, Ji's the rising star - he's the new Park Ji-Sung, if you like."
