Yesterday, FC Gifu confirmed the signing of Brazilian midfielder Henik (or Henik Luiz de Andrade to give him his full name) from Criciuma in Brazil.

A report I read on a Portuguese-language newspaper site stated that he in “Volante” – a holding midfielder – with a good engine. Gifu have quite a lot of midfielders now, and a few of them are holding midfielders. It is a role Tsukasa Masuyama thrived in at times last year, so it will be interesting to see how he fits in.

If and when I can find more info, I’ll post it.
