Former Serie A striker Takayuki Morimoto will join Kawasaki Frontale on a two-year deal starting Feb.1, the J. League first-division side announced Thursday.

Morimoto, 27, scored five goals in 27 games in J2 this season, his third year with JEF United Chiba. He will return to the J. League top flight for the first time in 11 seasons, having left for Italian club Catania from Tokyo Verdy in 2006 — a year after they were relegated.
