Just hours after reports broke about the Cosmos landing a TV deal with an One World Sports, an English-language channel that covers sport in Asia, the New York Cosmos have secured one of Japan’s rising stars in soccer.
The Cosmos agreed a deal with Shimizu S-Pulse of the J-League in Japan to sign on-loan forward Satoru Kashiwase for the upcoming fall NASL season. The 20-year-old Japan youth international subsequently becomes the youngest Japanese soccer player to ever play in America.
The Cosmos also announced that they had come to terms with Brazilian midfielder Paulo Mendes, most recently with the Atlanta Silverbacks.
