Tanaka linked with Wigan move

The 28-year-old has revealed that he is keen on a new challenge and is ready to leave the Urawa Reds in January.

“The European and Middle East sides have presented me with terms equal to what I get now,” he told Nikkan Sports.

“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.”

Dutch giants Feyenoord is also reportedly interested in signing the defender.
