Singapore striker Sahil signs for Sarawak

Malaysia Super League (MSL) side Sarawak have confirmed the signing of Singapore international Sahil Suhaimi from Tampines Rovers as a replacement for Korean striker Lee Jong-ho. 

Sahil, who turns 25 in July, recently went on a month-long training stint with Burnley before trialing with the Crocs in Kuching. He could now feature against Perak at Perak Stadium on Wednesday.

Sarawak also signed Montenegrin midfielder Milos Raickovic to replace Philippines international Mark Hartmann.

"I hope both these players can help our problems up front," Sarawak FA president Datuk Posa Majais told UtusanBorneo.

"Most importantly, I hope their presence will help Sarawak improve its position in the MSL standings so we stay in the top flight next season."

Sarawak are in 11th place, one point away from the safety zone. Kelantan and T-Team, who are in seventh and eighth, are merely two points away.
