Usami confirms Bayern switch

Gamba Osaka forward Takashi Usami has confirmed he is to join Bayern Munich on a six-month loan deal.

Usami, 19, will make the switch after their J.League clash with Vissel Kobe next month.

He told a news conference on Monday: "You don't get a chance like this every day. I decided it was the right thing to do to take on this big challenge. To be honest it still hasn't sunk in.

"For me, it is still hard to imagine I will be playing in such a big league with so many big-name players."

Usami, whose deal is likely to be made permanent if he impresses, will have to compete for a place initially with the likes of Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben but he is relishing the fight.

He added: "I want to improve my game and, one day, take their place."

Bayern start their pre-season training on Monday under new coach Jupp Heynckes.
