Current League Season Stats
Japan international Kaoru Mitoma joined Albion in August 2021 on a four-year-contract, on undisclosed terms from J1 League team Kawasaki Frontale.
He spent the 2021/22 season on loan with Belgian first division side Royal Union Saint-Gilloise, linking up with the Brussels based side after a break following the Olympics in Tokyo.
Kaoru was part of the squad which missed out on bronze in their final match against Mexico, after a good tournament on home soil.
The 25-year-old has represented his country at senior level, making his debut in November 2021.
His season with Union was a success as well, as he made 29 appearances, scoring eight times and laying on four assists.
Kaoru would quickly establish himself as a popular player with his exciting displays down the flank, before scoring his first goal in a 3-2 win at Wolves in November 2022.
