FC Tokyo on Tuesday announced the return of winger Sotan Tanabe following his two-year loan to Spanish second division club Sabadell.
The 25-year-old joined the Japanese-owned Catalan side in 2013 before recording a total of five goals in 64 Segunda Liga appearances.
“I want to express my gratitude to everyone from both clubs and our fans and supporters for giving me the opportunity to play in Spain for two years,” Tanabe said in a statement.
“I want to demonstrate what I’ve gained from this experience and contribute to a championship for FC Tokyo.”
Tanabe played for Tokyo for four and a half seasons before his loan, scoring eight goals in 81 appearances across all competitions.
