Kyodo

Kashiwa Reysol have signed defender Patrick on loan from Brazilian club Ferroviaria, the J. League first-division club announced Friday.

The 22-year-old, 189-cm center back will join Reysol, who lost former Japan defender Daisuke Suzuki to Gimnastic de Tarragona in the Spanish second division last month.

New manager Milton Mendes saw his side fall 2-1 at home to Urawa Reds in the opening weekend. Reysol will face Omiya Ardija away on Saturday.
