The 30 capped international says he will speak to his agent and decide his future by 25th November, he is currently on international duty with Japan in Hong Kong, speaking to Nikkan Sports Tanaka said: 'The European and Middle East sides have presented me with terms equal to what I get now'

'I want to consult with my agent and make up my mind by 25th November after returning to Japan.

'I love Urawa Reds. This feeling of mine will never change if I leave the team. I love the supporters from the bottom of my heart. But I also want to care about my football life.'


Urawa Reds club spokeswoman Naoko Arai said: 'We are negotiating with him in all sincerity after making an offer to him.'

Tanaka has made 150 appearances for Urawa Reds scoring an impressive 45 goals in 5 years at the club; he has also scored 6 times for Japan. Along with the Latics Dutch side Feyenoord and un-named clubs from Spain and Portugal are also monitoring the situation closely.

japanese paul scharner! I have been reading up on this guy, sounds like a very interesting player, he is super comfortable on the ball and loves bringing it forward into play and acting as a playmaker from CB i.e. an old school ball playing sweeper type. Provocative!

A win tonight would lift us out of the bottom three and put us just three points behind Aston Villa in 17th, the incentive is there, we need to start taking opportunities are there won't be any more left.

It's likely that Warren Joyce will start with the same si
