Brunei DPMM line up move for Tampines Rovers’ Billy Mehmet
Tampines Rovers marksman Billy Mehmet is set to leave the Stags after reportedly catching the interest of Brunei DPMM.
Mehmet was also pivotal in Tampines’ run to the AFC Cup quarter-finals and he could end up with a medal around his neck as the Stags face Albirex Niigata (S) in the Singapore Cup final.
The 31-year-old has carved out a solid career in this part of the world, previously representing clubs in Thailand, Australia and Malaysia, among others, prior to making the move to Singapore.
Although the season is yet to end, DPMM announced the signing of Mehmet on its club website, as well as the extension of star striker Rafael Ramazotti’s contract for the 2017 season.
Currently, the S.League only allows each team to have a maximum quota of three foreign imports.
