USM x UDN Partnership : Takehiro Tomiyasu
USM are delighted to announce that we have been contracted by leading Japanese agency UDN Sports to secure the potential transfer of Bologna and Japan International defender Takehiro Tomiyasu.
Tomiyasu made his Japan debut at the age of 19 and he has been showing the potential to become a mainstay of the Samurai Blue defense for years to come.Having played three seasons for his local club Avispa Fukuoka in his native Japan before joining Belgian club Sint-Truiden in January 2018.
He represented his country at multiple youth levels before Hajime Moriyasu gave him his first senior cap in October 2018.
He joined Bologna in 2019 and although he arrived as a natural center-back, Felsinei coach Siniša Mihajlović utilized him as a right-back. Despite not featuring in his natural position, the Japanese youngster became a regular starter and he played with a composure rare for someone his age.
