Dempo Sports Club on Friday completed the process of acquisition of Japanese mid-fielder Shinnosuke Honda from Thai Premier League side Buriram United.
Honda is Dempo's fourth signing of the season after Beto, Billy Mehmet and Simon Colosimo.
Honda, 23, is a 6 feet tall defender from Fukushima. Having represented Japan in the U-22 championships, he began his career at J-League side Jubilo Iwata before moving on to Buriram United in the Thailand Premier League.
He was a member of Buriram squad which won the Thai premier League and Thai FA Cup in 2011. During his stint at Buriram United he spent two seasons on loan playing for Bangkok Glass FC.
Earlier this month, Honda was on trials with Dempo Sports Club where he managed to impress upon their new coach Arthur Papas.
Libero Sports facilitated the transfer of Shinnosuke Honda from Buriram United to Dempo Sports Club. Honda will join the team in the first week of September.
