Baku, September 1, AZERTAC

French football club Olympique Marseille on Monday snapped up Japanese defender Yuto Nagatomo, according to Anadolu Agency.

Marseille announced their new signing in a Twitter video showing the French side unwrapping a pack of new player cards, with the 33-year-old left back called a "Fierce Warrior, Thunder Speed and Tireless Runner."

He previously played for FC Tokyo and Italian clubs Cesena and Inter Milan.

In 2018, Nagatomo made his way to Turkey to join Istanbul powerhouse Galatasaray.

The Japanese international helped the Lions win back-to-back Turkish Super Lig titles in 2018 and 2019.

Nagatomo had 65 appearances for Galatasaray and scored 3 goals.

He left the Istanbul club this summer once his contract ended.
