Real Mallorca sign Japanese midfielder Akihiro Ienaga

Real Mallorca have signed Japanese midfielder Akihiro Ienaga, the Primera Division club have announced on their website.

The 24-year-old passed his medical on Wednesday and agreed a contract that will tie him to the Balearic Island outfit until 2015, although he will initially be sent out on loan as Mallorca already have three non-European Union players in their squad.

The former Gamba Osaka and Oita Trinita player, who will become the second Japanese player to represent Mallorca after striker Yoshito Okubo, has a buy-out clause of 18 million euros in his contract and will be presented in the coming days.

Mallorca are currently 10th in the Primera Division standings after 15 games.
