West Bromwich Albion completed the signing of Luke Moore from Aston Villa for £3million and signalled their intent to convert Do-heon Kim's loan move into a permanent deal.
The Baggies have notified the midfielder's club, Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma, that they are exercising their option to sign the Korea Republic international in a £550,000 two-year deal, with the option of a third year in the club’s favour.
Manager Tony Mowbray said: "The four months he has already spent with us will have been a big benefit to him in terms of integrating with the squad and overcoming the language barrier.
"His loan spell was all about settling into a new club and culture but he's got undoubted talent and he'll have a more significant part to play next season."
Kim’s involvement was limited to just one start and six substitute appearances last season but he did score his first goal for the club in the Baggies last game of the season at Queens Park Rangers.
Kim will officially become a permanent signing on June 1.
Moore’s deal has been finalised. The 22-year-old striker, who joined the Baggies on loan in February, has signed a three-year deal with a further year's option in the club's favour.
The fee could rise to £3.5million depending on performance-related criteria.
