Unhappy Morimoto wants transfer

BARI, Italy (Kyodo) Unhappy with his reduced playing time at Catania, striker Takayuki Morimoto hopes to find a new team after the current Serie A season.

“I’ll never stay at Catania,” the 22-year-old said Sunday after remaining on the bench in a 1-1 draw away to bottom side Bari.

“I can’t say anything concrete, but my agent has mentioned offers from some clubs.”

Morimoto, who joined Catania from Tokyo Verdy in 2006, has started only three matches and scored one goal this season.
