Thai national team and Muang Thong United FC forward Teerasil Dangda has been loaned for one-year contract to play for Sanfrecce Hiroshima FC of J-League, making him the second Thai soccer player after Chanathip Songkrasin to play in Japanese professional soccer league.
Under a contract which was agreed upon on Tuesday (Dec 19) by Muang Thong United FC and Sanfrecce Hiroshima FC, Teerasil will be loaned to play for a year for the Japanese team, but if he performs satisfactorily he will be moved from Muang Thong United to play for the Japanese team like Chanathip who has become a player of Consadole Sapporo.
Teerasil will arrive in Japan for a medical checkup on Feb 1 and an official press conference will be held on the following day to announce his on loan to play for Sanfrecce Hiroshima FC.
Sanfrecce Hiroshima was J-League champions for three times and was ranked the third in World Soccer Club Championship in 2015. But the team performed poorly last season dropping to the 15th ranking of the league and survived relegation.
The main problem of the team was that they rarely scored, just managing to score 32 goals in 34 matches, with the five forward players having scored just 18 goals.
