Saints Confirm Yoshida Signing
Our sixth signing of the transfer window has been confirmed with just over a day of the transfer window left. Japanese Olympic captain Maya Yoshida, a centre back has agreed a three year contract.
Yoshida joins us from VVV Venlo in Holland where he made 54 appearances in two and a half years. He provides much needed experience at centre back and competition for Jose Fonte and Jos Hooiveld.
Initially a defensive midfielder he will aim to provide a cultured influence at the back, the 24 year old is also a full international for the Blue Samurai and played in the same AFC Asian Cup final victory in which fellow Saint Tadanari Lee scored the winner.
Welcome to the Premier League and Saint Mary's "Yoshi."
