Kashiwa Reysol confirmed the return of promising goalkeeper Kosuke Nakamura following the end of his one-year loan spell at Avispa Fukuoka.
The 20-year-old played 20 games for the Kyushu side in their J1 Promotion Playoff-winning campaign, which will see them return to the top flight this season for the first time since 2011.
“I want to work hard to contribute to Reysol’s victories,” Nakamura said.
The youngster will challenge for the No. 1 position between the posts following the departure of Takanori Sugeno to Kyoto Sanga on Tuesday.
Reysol are seeking a return to the AFC Champions League qualification berths next season, after finishing 10th in the overall standings last term.
