Makino returning to Japan on loan


COLOGNE, Germany — Cologne says it is sending defender Tomoaki Makino back to Japan for one year on loan to the Urawa Red Diamonds to gain more experience.

Cologne sports director Volker Fink says the 24-year-old Makino "needs to play regularly" and that Cologne wants to "help in his further development" at home.
