S.League Transfer Round-Up: American youngster spotted at Warriors, Tampines focus on AFC Cup
It is unclear whether Warriors have signed a replacement for Jonathan Behe but American Clay Silvas was recently spotted training and playing for them in pre-season friendlies.
The 19-year-old last turned out for Sacramento Republic FC's under-18 side and scored 11 goals in 15 games there. Silvas could fill the Warriors’ last import slot or be placed into the Prime League squad.
The Warriors have at least replaced Yazid Yasin in goal with Hyrulnizam Juma’at.

Tampines shocked the footballing fraternity after parting ways with head coach Akbar Nawas just weeks away from the start of the S.League, with Juergen Raab announced as his replacement.
Raab has brought in two new signings, Sahil Suhaimi and Raspreet Sandhu. The two are only available for the AFC Cup, although Tampines have stated they will register Sahil for the S.League if he does not realise his dream of earning a move overseas.
