Ao Tanaka’s frontal young pistol is loaned to Dusseldorf



Kawasaki Frontale midfielder Ao Tanaka is set to join Fortuna Düsseldorf on a one-year loan, the German second division team said Saturday.

Tanaka, 22, will begin the lease on July 1 when the clubs agreed to make the move permanent.

The 2019 J. League Young Player of the Year was an important figure for Frontale, who claimed their fourth J1 title in five seasons.

He has already made his senior national debut and is expected to become a key player in the Japanese Olympic team at the Tokyo Games this summer.

A native of Kawasaki, Tanaka has gone through the Frontale youth system and can play multiple roles in midfield thanks to his strong defensive and playing abilities.

“I am delighted to take this important step,” Tanaka said in a statement from Düsseldorf.

The historic club will qualify for a return to the Bundesliga after finishing fifth in the second division last season.
