Johor Darul Ta’zim FC (JDT) are in negotiations to sign one local and four foreign players for the 2022 season. An announcement will be made in due course.
Former Wolverhampton Wanderers trainee Hong Wan has already received his Malaysian passport and will strengthen JDT’s 2022 squad.
The club have decided to release Gonzalo Cabrera and will retain all other senior team foreign players. One of the four new foreign players will be paired with Bergson while the others will be placed in JDT II and be used in a rotation system.
JDT will loan out Irfan Fazail and Stuart Wilkins to Sabah, Fadhli Shas and Syazwan Andik to Melaka United and are currently in discussion with several clubs to loan Syafiq Ahmad.
JDT will also be recruiting Endrick dos Santos for the 2023 season, with a possibility of naturalisation. The club has made a decision to only naturalise players who are young and can contribute long term.
