Yoshiyuki No More

Former Squirrels captain Yoshiyuki Kobayashi has been released by the club at the end of his contract. The 31-year-old came to Omiya together with Daigo Kobayashi from Tokyo Verdy prior to the 2006 campaign and was a key player at the heart of Omiya's midfield for the following three seasons. With a serious injury in the latter part of 2008 and the subsequent appointment as coach of Jang Wae Ryong, however, Yoshiyuki was frozen out and made just a handful of appearances in the first half of 2009, before being loaned out to Kashiwa Reysol in June. Jang's having been kept on for another year therefore meant that the player's return to Ardija was very unlikely to happen.
