FC Tokyo adds Thai MF Jakkit

AFPTOKYO (AFP-Jiji) — Japan’s FC Tokyo have signed Thai playmaker Jakkit Wachpirom from Bangkok United on a loan deal until the end of the season, the J.League first-division club said Wednesday.

The 20-year-old attacking midfielder, who has played for Thailand’s under-23 side, joins countryman Chanathip Songkrasin in Japan’s professional league.

Chanathip agreed to sign for newly promoted first-division side Consadole Sapporo last December after helping Thailand beat Indonesia 2-1 in the final of the AFF championship.

FC Tokyo and Bangkok United announced a partnership tie-up earlier this year, the latest in a number of similar agreements between Japanese and Southeast Asian clubs.
