Miura transfer near complete

YOKOHAMA J. League second-division club Yokohama FC have reached a broad agreement on a loan transfer of veteran striker Kazuyoshi Miura, Yokohama FC Vice President Hisao Sakamoto said Monday.

“We have yet to sign a contract but both sides have basically reached an agreement, and I don’t expect a change of course,” Sakamoto said, adding that the deal for Miura would likely run from Nov. 7 through to Jan. 31 next year.

Miura, a 38-year-old former national team star, is expected to play for Sydney FC at the FIFA Club World Championship to be staged in December.
