Miura, who has been on loan from Yokohama FC to Suzuka Point Getters in the fourth-tier Japan Football League, will join Oliveirense until the summer.

The Portuguese club shares a parent company with Yokohama FC, making their return to the J-League top flight this year.

The latest move by Miura, now in his 38th year as a professional, will see him play in a fifth foreign country following stints in Brazil, Italy, Croatia and Australia.

Miura, who is both Japan's oldest-ever professional player and goal scorer, is reported to have also had offers from J2 and J3 clubs in addition to Suzuka, where his older brother Yasutoshi is manager.
