Keisuke ​Honda confirms Melbourne Victory exit

Keisuke Honda has confirmed that he is set to depart the Australian A-League.

The Melbourne Victory star will not be renewing his contract with the team when it expires.

Despite the 32-year-old Japanese midfielder enjoying a good campaign, where he netted seven goals and gave five assists in 18 games, he has decided that it is time to move on.

Honda has represented an impressive array of clubs in his career, including CSKA Moscow and AC Milan.

"I still don't decide where I will play next year," Honda told Fox Sports.

"But I knew that I would stay for just [one] year so I hope no one is surprised, no one is disappointed."
