Japan international Gen Shoji signs for Toulouse


Toulouse (France) (AFP) – French Lige 1 club Toulouse said Friday they had signed Japan international Gen Shoji for an undisclosed sum until June 2022.

The central defender who helped Japan reach the knock-out stages of the 2018 World Cup joins the French club from Japanese champions Kashima Antlers.

Sources close to the deal said the transfer fee was around three million euros for the 26-year-old who was part of the Kashima side that won the Asian Champions League for the first time in November.

“He has an impressive record, with the Japanese treble (league, cup and super cup in 2016) and he also helped his country reach the last 16 of the World Cup,” Toulouse said on its website.
