Hariss to head to either Portugal or Japan

Johor Darul Ta’zim will let go two of their prized assets for the upcoming 2017 season after announcing that Jorge Pereyra Diaz and Hariss Harun will leave the club. 

Striker Diaz will be sold, while Hariss will be loaned out for his development after three successful seasons with the Malaysian champions.

Hariss' destination is unclear at this point but Gomez hinted that the midfielder could go to a Portuguese or Japanese club on a one-year loan.

“Hariss Harun is a good and disciplined player. He means a lot to the club and we will send him out to a Portuguese or Japanese club on a year-long loan,” JDT head coach Mario Gomez said in a club statement.

“I'm sure at his current age, his playing ability will improve if he's given a chance to play at a higher level.

“He will be a valuable asset for the club in the future when he returns from the overseas club. At the moment it is the best arrangement for the club,” Gomez added.

“I have decided and the management has agreed to sell our foreign striker Jorge Pereyra Diaz because we have received a good offer for the club,”

“He wants to stay here, but we cannot afford the new salary requested and we need to control the club's spending. Therefore the decision to sell him is correct.
