Former Bundesliga player Ilso set to join Kedah

Former Bundesliga player Ken Ilso arrived in Malaysia recently and is set to join Kedah as the club looks to improve upon its third-place finish in the 2016 season.

Kedah FA has been on the lookout for a new foreign striker after the departure of Shane Smeltz.

Ilso enjoyed two goal-laden years in the S.League with Home United previously, plundering in 46 goals in 54 appearances. He was shortlisted twice in a row for the S.League Player of the Year gong.

Ilso formerly played in Germany with Fortuna Düsseldorf and helped the club earn promotion to the top flight.

Should Ilso join Kedah as believed, he will follow the likes of Masaya Jitozono and Jonathan Behe in making the switch from the S.League to Malaysia in the 2017 season.
