The 21-year-old enjoyed a breakout year in 2017 with seven goals and two assists for Home, but could opt to continue his football development with Albirex

Adam made headlines at the age of 17 by jetting off to France for a two-year stint with FC Metz's youth team in 2013, before returning to Singapore to serve National Service (NS). He went on to play for the Garena Young Lions for two seasons. 

The 21-year-old enjoyed a breakout year in 2017 with seven goals and two assists in all appearances for Home, but could opt to continue his football development with Albirex.

Home and Albirex have declined comment on the matter.

The Japanese satellite team, which completed a clean sweep of all four major domestic trophies for the past two seasons, are well-known for their outstanding attitude towards training and fitness.  According to media reports, they will be permitted to sign two Singaporean U-23 players this season.
