Tomoyuki Arata to Jubilo Iwata
Mito's star forward Tomoyuki Arata has transferred to Jubilo Iwata. It was almost miraculous for Mito to keep him with a huge amount of foreign and domestic interest last year, but he's made it clear that he'd like to play on a higher level. Mito couldn't make it this year, so he joined with a good offer from the Shizuoka club. It also happens to be right by his childhood home.
