Southampton striker Tadanari Lee has rejected a permanent transfer at FC Tokyo.

The 27-year-old started just four games, coming off the bench on nine other occasions, but did score four goals during his loan spell in Tokyo.

Lee said: "I felt like I was only playing in fits and starts and thought a different challenge would be better for me.

"Maybe it was a case of me not being good enough. I spoke to the coach and we tried to work something out."
