Tadanari Lee: Southampton striker has rejected permanent move to FC Tokyo

Tadanari Lee: Southampton striker has rejected permanent move to FC Tokyo

Lee returned to Japan in February but has rejected the chance of a permanent move because he felt he was not getting enough time on the pitch.

The 27-year-old started just four games, coming off the bench on nine other occasions, but did score four goals during his loan spell in Tokyo.

Lee said: "I felt like I was only playing in fits and starts and thought a different challenge would be better for me.

"Maybe it was a case of me not being good enough. I spoke to the coach and we tried to work something out."

Lee, who joined Saints from Sanfrecce Hiroshima in January 2012, is not thought to feature in the long-term plans of manager Mauricio Pochettino.
