J. League second-division club Montedio Yamagata said Saturday that it had terminated the contract of goalkeeper Hayato Nakamura, who was arrested earlier this month for violating child pornography laws.

The 24-year-old Nakamura admitted to the charges after he was arrested for sharing online a pornographic video featuring an underage boy. He was fined ¥300,000 and released.
