J. League first-division club Kashiwa Reysol will re-sign Brazilian striker Cristiano on a permanent basis from Ventforet Kofu, Reysol said on Wednesday.
The 29-year-old Cristiano, who spent last season on loan at Kashiwa and scored 14 goals in 34 league outings, has scored seven times for Kofu this term. He will join up with Reysol after the first stage concludes on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Reysol midfielder Kohei Tezuka will be out for around four weeks after spraining his right foot on Sunday in a practice match against Toyo University.
