BY foxsports • May 18, 2011

Japanese midfielder Hajime Hosogai says he will stay at promoted Augsburg in the Bundesliga after playing in the German second division with the team this season.

The 24-year-old Hosogai is on loan from Bayer Leverkusen, which signed him from the J-League club Urawa Reds in December.

Hosogai said Wednesday on his website that ''I will continue to play for Augsburg. It's been officially decided.''

Augsburg secured promotion to the Bundesliga for the first time despite losing 2-1 at second division champion Hertha Berlin on Sunday.
