S.League mid-season transfer window
Albirex Niigata (S)
Transfers in: Shuhei Ogawa
Albirex have the best defence in the league and it is a big reason why they are ahead of the chasing pack.
With the White Swans putting in stellar performances, little wonder coach Naoki Naruo has not made any drastic changes to his squad.
However, he has moved to provide cover for Yosuke Nozawa, by signing on Shuhei Ogawa.
Transfers in: Niko Tokic
With the club scoring only seven goals in 12 games, it was imperative that they solved this issue immediately.
As Croatian striker Robert Pericic was unavailable for the near future due to injury, the Tigers made the hard decision to release him and pursue a suitable replacement to improve the club’s fortunes.
Niko Tokic was signed subsequently and his credentials are quite impressive. Just two years ago, he played in Lithuania’s top league and finished the season as the Golden Boot winner with 19 goals.
