Kacar seals Japanese switch

Hamburg have confirmed that Gojko Kacar has completed his move to Japanese club Cerezo Osaka.

The Japanese transfer window closes on Tuesday and Cerezo have been in talks over a deal to sign Kacar for the past few days.

Hamburg gave the 27-year-old midfielder the green light to travel over and train with the club, and have now officially announced his departure.

"Gojko Kacar has left the club to join Cerezo Osaka of Japan. The transfer has gone through," a Hamburg spokesperson told Deutsche Presseagentur.

Serbia international Kacar has fallen out of favour at Hamburg this season, having joined the club from Hertha Berlin in 2010.
