Yes, she was playing in AS Elfen Sayama in season 2012, I guess. At the end of the season, when the team was relegated, INAC signed Ayaka Watanabe for season 2013. I don't know this Takeo Matsuda, but, since he managed Beleza and Saitama, I assume it's a good move by INAC. Does anyone know more about him? I guess they were just tears of disappointment from missing Empress' Cup's final. Erina Yamane was spotted crying after the match too. It's been a difficult season for Vegalta: missing Exciting Series was for sure heart-breaking for them and Empress' Cup could have been their chance for redeeming the whole season. They went close enough though, with the semi-final. I don't think Yuuri Kawamura will leave Vegalta: it would be the third change of club in three season for her! She played for long in Albirex Niigata Ladies, then in 2013 she moved to JEF United Ichihara Chiba Ladies; something had to go wrong there (maybe she didn't like the coach, the same one that was later accused to molest young players?), because in 2014 she passed to Vegalta Sendai Ladies. She's currently fighting for a place in NT's roster, so I don't think she's going to change again, unless it is to come back to her old club in Niigata.
