Shunsuke Nakamura has extended his footballing career by signing a deal with Yokohama FC - at the age of 41.

But despite the Japanese midfielder's age, he's not the oldest squad member at the J2 League outfit - striker Kazuyoshi Miura is still playing at the ripe old age of 52.

Miura, who made his debut in 1986 with Brazilian side Santos, has featured twice this season for Edson Tavares' side after signing a new deal in January.

He won 89 caps for Japan, the last coming 19 years ago, and broke Stanley Matthews' record as the oldest professional player to score a goal, when he found the net in 2017 at the age of 50.

Why Celtic fans should not be concerned by Rangers' transfer window

Why Celtic fans should not be concerned by Rangers' transfer window Rangers have had a busy transfer window this Summer so far trying to bulk up their squad for the coming season. This shouldn’t worry Celtic fans though, as Celtic are doing some great business themselves. Steven Gerrard has made seven signings already in this year’s window, with Steven Davis becoming a permanent player included in this. It has been a very hectic time for Rangers especially seeing as it’s not even July yet. Celtic fans shouldn’t think about this and realise that Celtic are doing great themselves at the moment. Marian Shved and Christopher Jullien have both joined the Bhoys in long-term deals and both look to be brilliant additions to the squad.

Former Celtic midfielder Shunsuke Nakamura enjoyed a trophy-laden four years at Parkhead. In addition to capturing a genuine Japanese superstar and expanding its Eastern fan base, Celtic had acquired — perhaps by accident — a uniquely talented player capable of lifting the entire team .

Nakamura has been described by Yokohama chiefs as a "trump card" as the side aim for promotion to the Japanese top flight.

The former Celtic fans' favourite could come up against former Hearts striker Juanma, who plies his trade for Omiya Ardija.

The 98-times capped Japan international began his professional career with Yokohama F. Marinos - who were formed by the merger of Yokohama Marinos and Yokohama Flugels and prompted the establishment of the fan-owned Yokohama FC - and also enjoyed spells in Italy with Reggina and Espanyol in Spain before returning to his home country with Marinos and then Jubilo Iwata.

Istanbul Basaksehir make offer for Celtic target Jorgensen.
Istanbul Basaksehir have reportedly made a €2 million offer for Huddersfield Town defender and Celtic target Mathias Jorgensen. According to Turkish Danish outlet Ekstra Bladet, cited by Sports Witness, Basaksehir are looking to secure the services of the towering centre-back, who reportedly has no future in Yorkshire. Terriers boss Jan Siewert has left him out of the club’s pre-season training camp with both the player and the club happy to sell him this summer.
