Forward Junya Tanaka has joined Vissel Kobe on a full transfer, the club announced late last week.

The 29-year-old previously played for Portugal’s Sporting CP and spent the 2016 MEIJI YASUDA J1 League season on loan with Kashiwa Reysol, where he scored four goals in 21 appearances.

“I am grateful for the opportunity to take on a new challenge and will play with all of my strength for the club,” Tanaka commented.
