(Reuters) - Sony Corp <6758.T> plans to appoint Chugai Pharmaceutical Co <4519.T> Chief Executive Osamu Nagayama as chairman, the Nikkei reported.

Nagayama's appointment will be finalized on June 20 at a board meeting to be held immediately after a shareholders' meeting, the business daily said.

Outgoing chairman Howard Stringer, who served as Sony's CEO between 2005 and 2012, will retire in June, the Japanese paper said.
