Over the last couple of days, news filtered through (which was finally confirmed this morning) that young forward Tomohiro Tanaka has joined J3 side Gainare Tottori on loan for the 2015 season.

Tanaka was promoted from the FC Gifu Second side at the beginning of last season, but only went on to make 9 appearances, scoring his solitary FC Gifu goal in the 2-2 draw against JEF United in May. He showed glimpses of potential, but was bypassed by fellow FC Gifu Second Alumni Junki Endo as the season progressed.

Hopefully this time in J3 will allow Tanaka to develop both his play and his finishing and that he’ll come back to us an improved player.

Good luck Tomo!!!
