Mito has brought on board forward Satoshi Nakayama. He was a free agent practicing with the team for some time before being offered the spot.
He spent 10 years under contract to Gamba Osaka through 2008, and was contracted to Kumamoto last season. He's appeared in 179 J. League games and has scored 23 times. He played in the 2006 ACL with Osaka and previously played for several national youth and Olympic qualifying teams.
His strongest talent is scoring off set plays and crosses, so he fits in well with the current attacking system. He'll wear number 26.
