It will certainly be exciting to see which college graduating players are likewise taken away in the next year or two after being nurtured to succeed by the Mito staff!

Takuro Kikuoka to Tokyo Verdy
Mito lost another good one with midfielder Kikuoka's transfer to Tokyo. He'll be a loss, and probably the biggest loss yet this off season aside from Arata, but in all honesty he'll probably fit in better with Tokyo's play style and they need someone with his skills a bit more than Mito does.
