Antlers’ Takasaki loaned to Matsumoto

Kashima Antlers on Wednesday announced the loan of striker Hiroyuki Takasaki to MEIJI YASUDA J2 League side Matsumoto Yamaga for the rest of the 2016 season.

The 30-year-old, who spent half of last season on loan to Montedio Yamagata, has yet to make an appearance in the current campaign.

“I want to become a player capable of meeting everyone’s expectations so that I can become a key part of Kashima Antlers in the future,” Takasaki said.

The Ibaraki native has been at Antlers since 2015 after spells at Urawa Reds and Ventforet Kofu.
