Soccer: Urawa defender Iwanami appears headed for Al Sadd move


Urawa Reds defender Takuya Iwanami is poised to join Qatari side Al Sadd, a source familiar with the matter said Wednesday.

The 28-year-old joined the J-League first-division side from Vissel Kobe in 2018 and has since been their regular center-back.

“Transfer negotiations with a foreign club are progressing,” said Urawa, adding that he will not be joining Reds’ preseason training camp in Okinawa.
