MSL Talking Points: JDT’s interest and Mohamadou's application to be Malaysian
Ghaddar’s JDT move from Kelantan
The writing was on the wall when Football Malaysia Limited Liability Partnership (FMLLP) announced a rule change in April that allowed foreign players to move clubs within the country during the mid-season transfer window.
JDT have made a policy of theirs to sign the best players in the country and Ghaddar was a perfect fit.
Having played in the MSL on two other occasions he knew his way around defences. Ghaddar has already scored 18 goals in 12 league matches this year, as many as last season’s top scorer Jorge Pereyra Diaz of JDT managed all season in 2016.
The move has yet to be confirmed but JDT have come out in the open to state their interest while Ghaddar has already bid farewell to the Red Warriors fans.

Kedah find rhythm under Nidzam to book Pahang Final date
The 4-4 with PKNS last Tuesday added heat to Kedah caretaker coach Nidzam Adzha's hopes of being given the hotseat on a permanent basis, but the Red Eagles were back at their best against Terengganu in the FA Cup semi-final second leg.
Kedah ran out comfortable 3-0 winners against Terengganu at Sultan Ismail Nasiruddin Stadium on Saturday, setting up a mouth-watering clash with Pahang for the FA Cup trophy on May 20.
Both Pahang and Kedah have defences that could be breached but both teams can produce breath-taking stuff at the other end.
