Muangthong United and Thailand international striker Teerasil Dangda may be set for a return to the J.League during the upcoming 2020 season, according to this report from Siamsport.

The article claims that an unnamed J.League club has submitted an offer for the striker, and the club is allowing him to make a decision over whether or not he would like to spend a second stint in Japan. A Muangthong United official also mentioned that they had received offers from Japanese clubs for Teerasil last season as well, but declined the move.

Teerasil Dangda spent a season on loan in the J.League with Sanfrecce Hiroshima back in 2018. He made 32 appearances for the club, scoring six goals.

Despite being sidelined for most of last season due to injury, Teerasil remains the first choice striker of Japanese boss Akira Nishino, who has recently taken over as manager of the Thai National Team.

It appears that the decision is now in the hands of the player, with a potential move likely to take place after the J.League season concludes this weekend.

In related news, Yokohama F. Marinos are reportedly preparing to turn their loan deal of Muangthong United left-back Theerathon Bunmathan into a permanent transfer. The fee is expected to be in the region of 55m Thai Baht, or €1.65m.
