Defender Ishikawa joins Consadole

Hokkaido Consadole Sapporo on Sunday announced the arrival of veteran defender Naoki Ishikawa on a full transfer from Vegalta Sendai.

The 31-year-old previously played for Consadole in 2009 and 2010, also calling Kashiwa Reysol and Albirex Niigata home in a career that began in 2004.

“I’m grateful for the opportunity to return to Sapporo after six and a half years,” Ishikawa said. 

“I want to play hard and show the results of my experiences since I was last here. Thank you for your support!”

Ishikawa, who made 10 appearances for Vegalta as well as six in cup competitions, will wear the No.32 shirt for Consadole.
