Yasuyuki Konno joins Gamba Osaka

Samurai Blue centre-back Yasuyuki Konno has agreed to join Gamba Osaka. The 28 year-old, a fixture in Japan’s 2011 AFC Asian Cup victory, has been capped forty-seven times by the national team. Konno leaves the newly-promoted FC Tokyo, but will be afforded the opportunity to appear in the 2012 AFC Champions League following Gamba’s third-placed finish in J.League Division One in the 2011 season.
