(Football) Kakitani to join Basel
(07-07 18:51)

Japan forward Yoichiro Kakitani is set to join Swiss champion FC Basel.
Kakitani's J-League first-division club, Cerezo Osaka, announced the move on Monday. The club said he would join Basel on July 16.
Kakitani was third in the J-League in scoring with 21 goals last year, but only has one goal in 13 games this season.
He played in two games at the World Cup in Brazil, where Japan was eliminated in the group stage.
The Basel move will give the 24-year-old Kakitani an opportunity for playing time at a club that will compete in next season's European Champions League.
Basel has won the Swiss Super League the last five seasons. --AP
