NAGOYA (Kyodo) Nagoya Grampus are set to acquire midfielder Mu Kanazaki from relegated Oita Trinita, it was learned Sunday.

The two clubs have agreed on the transfer of the 20-year-old, according to senior Nagoya official Yoshihiro Fukushima, and the move is expected to be formalized in the coming days.

Kanazaki, who won his first senior international cap in a 2011 Asian Cup qualifier against Yemen in January, has scored seven goals in 82 matches in the J-League first division.

Oita were on the verge of bankruptcy before securing last month a rescue package worth around 600 million yen from a special J-League fund set aside for clubs facing financial difficulties.
