Yoshiaki Takagi wants to use his Utrecht move to press his Japanese national team claims

Utrecht-bound Tokyo teenager Yoshiaki Takagi says he hopes his move to the Netherlands will earn him a future call-up to the Japanese national team.

The 18-year-old Tokyo Verdy attacking midfielder, who is the son of famous Japanese former baseballer Yutaka, is expected to pen a five-year contract with Utrecht after the deal was agreed.

The story is too old to be commented.
