MADRID (AP) Spanish club Mallorca has signed Japan midfielder Akihiro Ienaga on a 4 1/2-year contract.
Club vice president Lorenzo Serra Ferrer said it is possible Ienaga will be loaned out to another team as Mallorca now has four non-European Union players and the maximum number allowed is three.
"We have received offers," Serra said, while adding that the club has yet to make a final decision.
The 24-year-old player arrives on a free transfer from Cerezo Osaka, where he scored two goals and made 12 assists last season.
