Kashima Antlers on Thursday announced the signing of Leo Silva on a full transfer from Albirex Niigata, with the midfielder targeting titles.

The 31-year-old arrived at the J1 League club in 2013, scoring five goals in 32 appearances this season.

“Kashima Antlers are an amazing club with a fantastic history and a number of trophies,” the Brazilian hardman said. 

“I want to contribute what I can to help the club continue to improve and add even more titles to their legacy. 

“I hope I can succeed like other great Brazilians, such as Zico, Leonardo and Jorginho, who have worn this shirt.”
