Next Match: away to Werder Bremen, December 21
Europe: UEFA Champions League (Round of 16)
Bayer Leverkusen has taken South Korea international Seung-Woo Ryu on loan for a year. The 20-year-old, who has already spent some time training with the Bundesliga club, is eligible immediately after agreeing on a one-year loan deal from Jeju United. He joins compatriot Heung-Min Son in Bayer's colors and could become a permanent member of the side if he impresses over the next 12 months. He will not feature in Leverkusen's final Bundesliga match of 2013 at Werder Bremen this weekend, but will report for duty in early 2014 at the club's winter training camp in Turkey.
