Japanese forward Kazuyoshi Miura, who turns 51 next month, has signed a new contract with Yokohama FC in the country's second tier.

The new deal means 'King Kazu' will enter the 33rd season of his record-breaking career, which began at the Brazilian side Santos in 1986.

'I've signed a contract extension for this season. I will always play my heart out and hope to continue to grow (as a player),' he said.

The former Genoa and Dinamo Zagreb player has been at Yokohama FC since 2005.

Capped 89 times for his country, Miura's 139 goals place him sixth in the all-time list of top scorers in J-League's top division.
