Kashima Antlers club president Hiroshi Ushijima said Tuesday he will reject an unsatisfactory offer from French club Marseille for the services of midfielder Koji Nakata.

Ushijima called the offer from the Mediterranean club led by former Japan coach Philippe Troussier unacceptable, saying, “We reject this offer. We can’t accept a deal for a transfer that offers hardly anything.”
