Japanese and Saint-Etienne midfielder Daisuke Matsui has made a switch for Ligue 1 outfit Grenoble.
The 28 year-old, who has 17 caps to his name by Japan, will now ply his trade at the highest order of football in France with Grenoble.
The club, which is owned by Japanese investors, are placing their hope on Matsui rediscovering his old, which saw him pick up the award for most assists in the 2005/06 season, when he played for Le Mans.
The midfield player moved from Le Mans(from 2004 to 2008) to Saint-Etienne, where he had a mixed season, in and out of the team.
Matsui has signed a three-year deal with Grenoble and will represent his nation Japan, who have just qualified for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
