Shinichi Terada could be set to sign a permanent deal with Yokohama FC .

The midfielder has been on loan since the middle of the season following a brief return to Banpaku. He had already spent two years on loan with the club in the 2010 and 2011 seasons and now looks set to make his stay in Yokohama permanent ahead of the 2013 season.

Terada came through the Gamba academy between 1997 and 2003 before being promoted to the first team in 2004. He has since made over 100 appearances for the club and was a regular face in the Gamba midfield between 2006 and 2008. He fell out of favour in 2009 and struggled to regain his place in the team this year making only 12 appearances so it is probably best that he moves on.
