Wellington re-signs with Avispa

Avispa Fukuoka on Tuesday announced the renewal of striker Wellington’s contract for 2016.

The Brazilian scored seven goals in 18 appearances for the MEIJI YASUDA J1 League promotion play-off winners this term.

“I feel blessed that we were able to earn promotion this season,” Wellington said. “Next season I want to continue to work hard on the J1 stage.”

The side celebrated their first return to the top-flight in five years last Sunday, when they earned promotion at the expense of Cerezo Osaka.
