Shinobu Ohno (28, INAC Kobe Leonessa) is supposed to head to France early in the new year in order to undergo a medical checkup and subsequently sign a formal contract to join the two-time defending UEFA WCL champions Olympique Lyonnais Féminine. It has recently been rumored that she hopes to play overseas. She injured her right knee in the Empress Cup match against Waseda University, and her right knee has been sore from it.
Both club teams actually met each other at the mobcast cup 2012. In the mobcast cup final, held at NACK5 Stadium Omiya in Japan in November of 2012, Olympique Lyonnais Féminine narrowly beat INAC Kobe Leonessa 2-1 after extra time.
More detailed information about Ohno's move to Olympique Lyon will be posted in this article as it becomes available.
