Football: Vegalta forward Nishimura moving to CSKA Moscow

Vegalta Sendai forward Takuma Nishimura is poised for a move to Russian Premier League side CSKA Moscow, an official source said Monday.

The 21-year-old Nishimura’s 11 goals are tied for the most by a Japanese player in the J-League’s first division this season.

With negotiations between the two clubs nearing completion, Nishimura is expected to travel to Europe in the coming days for a medical.

If all goes smoothly, an official announcement could be made this month.

CSKA is famous in Japan for the success Japan star Keisuke Honda had with the club.
