Hiddink goes Korean again

Lee Young Pyo has joined fellow countryman Park Ji Sung on loan at Guus Hiddink's PSV Eindhoven.

Midfield player Lee Young Pyo has joined fellow countryman Park Ji Sung and former Korean Republic coach Guus Hiddink on loan at PSV Eindhoven for the remainder of the season.

Six-month contract
The 25-year-old arrives on a six-month contract from Anyang Cheetahs in his homeland, and will be offered a three-year contract at the Dutch club should he impress.

Park's unveiling
PSV confirmed they were on the cusp of signing a second Korean player during yesterday's official unveiling of Park, 21, who has joined the Eindhoven club for three-and-a-half years from Japanese side Kyoto Purple Sanga.

Impressive World Cups
Both men enjoyed fine FIFA World Cups. Park scored the winning goal in Korea's 1-0 defeat of Portugal in the group stage, while Lee played five times as the country became the first from Asia to reach the semi-finals, where they lost to Germany. The duo will both travel to Turkey on Saturday for a PSV training camp.
