With more news to come, of course, here is a round-up of the moves in and out of the club so far.
Yuji Ono (27) is, so far, the best-known name to join the club, with overseas experience after leaving his first club - Yokohama F.Marinos - he has been playing at Sagan Tosu for the last three seasons. Also at the attacking end of the team we see Patric (32), who was on loan from Sanfrecce Hiroshima last season, has signed on a full transfer for the 2020 season and there have been some promotions from the Gamba youth system in Dao Tsukamoto, Shinji Toyama and Shuhei Kawasaki.
In midfield there has been little incoming action so far, with Mizuki Ichimaru (22) returned from his 2019 loan period at FC Gifu and Kwansai Gakuin University's Yuki Yamamoto joining the squad.
In defence we see Ryo Shinzato (29) has signed from Jubilo Iwata, left back Oh Jae-suk (30) has returned from his short loan at F.C. Tokyo, Tabinas Jefferson (21) has been signed on loan from FC Gifu and Keisuke Kurokawa - left back - is in from Kansai University and Korean Shin Won-ho has been signed from Boin High School.
There has been plenty of movement in the goalkeeper position, too, for Gamba in pre-season, with Kosei Tani (19) moving on loan to Shonan Bellmare for the 2020 season, Mizuki Hayashi (23) on loan at Renofa Yamaguchi, and Ken Tajiri has joined Gainare Tottori on a full transfer. Also on the goalkeeping front, Ryota Suzuki his also on the wsay out, having moved to JEF United on a full transfer. Incoming in the custodian position we see Kei Ishikawa (27) from Sagan Tosu, Jun Ichimori from Fagiano Okayama and Haruki Saruta (20) from Kashiwa Reysol (on loan until Jan. 31st, 2021).
Also of note for 2020, Kazunari Ichimi ended his loan at Kyoto Sanga and will be at Yokohama FC for 2020. Takagi Akito will be on loan at Montedio Yamagata, Leo Takae will spend his season at Machida Zelvia, Takahiro Ko will remain on loan at Renofa Yamaguchi for 2020,
Hiroki Noda has joined Montedio Yamagata on a full transfer, Hiroto Goya has moved to Kashiwa Reysol on a full transfer after his loan season at V-Varen Nagasaki, Koki Yonekura - on loan at JEF United Chiba in 2019 - has signed a full contract for his former team, and we wish him luck.
Ending the outgoing player news... Yuto Suzuki has returned to Kawasaki Frontale after his loan, while centre back Naoaki Aoyama has signed for Fukushima United - we wish them well. Gamba's 2019 Spanish imports - Markel Susaeta and David Cncha have been released, along with Bae Soo-young.
Of course, it goes without saying that Tsuneyasu Miyamoto will be continuing in the manager's role for 2020!
