Mizumoto moves on

The Japan Times

Gamba Osaka has acquired Japan national team prospect Hiroki Mizumoto from JEF United Chiba, both clubs announced Friday.

The 22-year-old defender, who joined Chiba out of Mie High School in 2004, has scored two goals in 76 J. League matches.

As the team captain, Mizumoto helped the Japan Under-22 national squad qualify for the Beijing Olympics.

He has also played in two games for then-coach Ivica Osim's national team as well.
