Former Arsenal and Celtic winger Fredrik Ljungberg has signed for Japanese club Shimizu S-Pulse, subject to a work permit, his representatives have confirmed.

Ljungberg, 34, spent the second part of last season with Celtic after a spell in Major League Soccer, but made only seven appearances for the Scottish club before departing as a free agent.

"I am so excited about playing in Japan," Ljungberg said. "I was inspired by the way the Japanese people dealt with the tragedy of the 11 March earthquake and I really want to show support for them by playing football in Japan and for S-Pulse in particular."
