Midfielder Kono joins V-Varen

V-Varen Nagasaki on Monday announced the signing of midfielder Shuto Kono on a full transfer from FC Tokyo.

The 23-year-old, who played for Nagasaki in 2013, spent the latter portion of this season on loan at Renofa Yamaguchi, where he made eight MEIJI YASUDA J2 League appearances.

His loan spells have also included stays at Oita Trinita, Machida Zelvia, and JEF United Chiba.

“I grew a lot while at V-Varen and I frequently thought of Nagasaki after I returned to Tokyo,” Kono said. 

“I hope I can become a driving force within the team. Thank you for your support.”
