Yesterday, we covered in depth the situation surrounding Yuta Toyokawa and his alleged transfer to Leeds and subsequent loan to KAS Eupen.
While we’d long forgotten this after the initial claims in January, it all came rushing back on Monday after the Japanese forward scored a hat-trick to help Eupen avoid relegation in the Jupiler Pro League and became an instant hero.
De Standaard gave us some clarification about the whole Leeds situation, but DH on Tuesday have given us a bit more information, reiterating that he isn’t under contract in any shape or form at Elland Road.
The Belgian website explain Toyokawa moved directly, via Aspire connections, from Kashima Antlers, and is due to stay there on a permanent deal until June 2019.
Eupen are now said to be ‘rubbing their hands together’ at the thought of owning a player who is now a cult hero with the fans after their 4-0 win over Royal Excel Mouscron, not having to deal with him returning to Leeds.
