Bayer Leverkusen signed Korea Republic U-20 international Ryu Seung-woo on a one-year loan from K-League side Jeju United.

The Bundesliga club says it has an option to sign forward Ryu on a full contract and having passed the medical on Wednesday, he will join Sami Hyypia's Leverkusen at their winter break training camp in Portugal next month.

Ryu joins fellow Korean Son Heung-min at second-placed Leverkusen who are at Werder Bremen on Saturday in the Bundesliga and have drawn Paris Saint-Germain in the knockout phase of the UEFA Champions League.
