Pieta Hotspurs sign Japanese Yamaguchi

Newly promoted side to the BOV Premier League Pieta’ Hostpurs confirmed the signing of Japanese attacking midfielder Takuma Yamaguchi Tuesday.

This is the Hotspurs’ first summer signing, ahead of other deals said to be close to completion. According to club sources, Yamaguchi will be on his first professional contract, following several years as a collegiate football player back in his home country.  

Yamaguchi will be part of a trio of Japanese players so far with Lida Teppei and last season’s top scorer Yuto Morita both extending their stay with the Pieta club.

All three players will be looking to follow in the footsteps of Shunsuke Nakamura, who played for Pieta the last time the club was in the Premier League. The midfielder had joined from Qrendi back in 2018, eventually making a move to Latvian club Valmiera in 2019.

For Pieta’ this will be their return to the Premier League for the first time since the 2018/19 season and the side will be hoping for more success under new coach Rodney Bugeja.
