S.League mid-season transfer window
Transfers in: Azim Izamuddin, Abdul Hafiz, Naim Tarif, Mu'iz Sisa
The reigning champions have had a torrid season so far by their coach’s Steve Kean high standards.
The Wasps are currently languishing in fifth spot, 11 points away from league leaders Albirex Niigata (S).
The difference for them this season has been the reduction of foreign players allowed per team, with DPMM forced to release Joe Gamble and Boris Raspudic.
However, Kean has sought to halt the club’s free fall from grace by promoting three youngsters in Azim Izamuddin, Abdul Hafiz and Naim Tarif.
Mu’iz Sisa, their main signing in this transfer window, serves as back up to left-back Najib Tarif, as Sairol Sahari is out for the season with an anterior cruciate ligament injury.
Transfers in: Mark Hartmann, Roberto Camarasa
Of all the clubs, Geylang have made the most impressive signing as they brought in two foreign signings.
Mark Hartmann is a Philippines international and he replaces the outgoing Branko Cubrilo. The Eagles have high expectations of the Azkals’ star and he is expected to bang in the goals that have been so sorely missing for Geylang.
With Geylang already having two other foreigners, Roberto Camarasa was signed as a Prime League player instead. The 20-year-old has La Liga experience despite his tender age, having turned out for Levante in 2015.
Camarasa even scored a free-kick for the Spanish side to salvage a 1-1 draw with Deportivo La Coruna in November.
