​Japan legend Keisuke Honda has found himself a new club after his come and get me plea on Twitter was answered... sort of.

The former CSKA Moscow and Milan midfielder sent a message to Manchester United in September offering to play for free in order to ease the Red Devils' injury woes.

The 33 year-old had been a free agent after his contract with Australian side Melbourne Victory expired in the summer.


But it appears that Honda, who was a part of the Japan squad that reached the last 16 of the 2018 World Cup before their heartbreaking exit to Belgium, has finally found himself a new club, after he announced on Twitter that he will start training with Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem on Thursday.

The Eredivisie club has yet to announce the news officially, so it appears this may be a trial for the experienced campaigner.

The move would mark a return to Dutch football for the Japanese international who spent three seasons with VVV-Venlo between 2007 and 2009, where he scored 24 goals in 68 appearances.

The playmaker offered to play for ​Manchester United after an injury crisis briefly looked like it was going to leave Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side with youngster Mason Greenwood as the club's only attacking option for their game against top four rivals ​Arsenal.

United elected not sign him however, and drew the game 1-1 after Marcus Rashford returned to fitness to start up top.

The Red Devils currently sit seventh in the Premier League table and are seven points off fourth placed ​Chelsea, who they face ​in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night.
