Long Dong-Won - Best Named Partnership Ever?

Long Dong-Won - Best Named Partnership Ever?

With the signing of Ji Dong-Won only a matter of days away from being completed we may also have the perfect named partner for him to play alongside next season.

Reports from the Irish Independent newspaper have linked Sunderland to a £7m move for Reading striker Shane Long.

This could see both Long and Dong up front for Steve Bruce's team as the season starts in August.

A brilliant duo but maybe just for comedy reasons only!

Long has been linked to a few clubs but hopefully if he moves to Wearside he can ignore the funniest name of two strikers in the Premier leagues history.

We expect the signing of Dong-Won to be completed on 1st July as he flew in for talks this weekend but we remain hopeful on the signing of the in-form Irish striker from Reading.

Can you think of another duo that makes you smile in football history??
