Montedio Yamagata confirmed that defender Jumpei Takaki was brought in on loan from Shimizu S-Pulse for the 2015 season on Friday.
“I want to work hard to fit in with my new team as quickly as possible,” the 32-year-old said in a statement. “Thank you for your support.”
Takaki had begun his career at S-Pulse and spent the majority of it there, save for two and a half seasons out on loan with Consadole Sapporo.
The veteran spent the majority of 2014 on the fringes of Katsumi Oenoki’s plans, and has failed to make a single appearance this term after being firmly displaced by Genta Miura.
