Australian national team captain Lucas Neill is being linked with a move to the J.League.
The 35-year old defender is a reported target for Omiya Ardija according to Nikkan Sports and could be on his way to Saitama very soon.
"Neill is free so we don't have to worry about the J. League transfer deadline on the 16th (of August)," the club official said.
"But we'd like to get the deal done as soon as possible."
