Malaysian national football team striker Faisal Halim has been linked with a move to the K League. Suwon Samsung and Incheon United have been mentioned as possible destinations.
The winger, who plays for Malaysian club Selangor FC, has recently been targeted by a number of K League clubs, with Suwon and Incheon both reportedly interested in signing him, according to Indonesian media outlet Sportsstar. It also reported that Selangor president John Kamal Hamidon has made it clear that he will not sell the player on the cheap.안전놀이터
Halim, 25, made his professional debut for Feyenoord in 2015 and has been with Selangor since the 2021 season after spells with Sri Pahang and Terengganu. He has now scored 10 goals in 21 appearances for Malaysia. He has scored ten of his goals in A-matches since Kim Pang Gon took over as head coach, making him a bit of a ‘Kim Pang Gon crown prince’ in Malaysia.
There are several players from Southeast Asia currently playing in the K League. Jeonnam Dragons have Indonesian international Asnawi Mangkualam, Seoul Eland have Vietnamese international Nguyen Van Thoan, and Chungbuk Cheongju FC have Malaysian international striker Kogileswaran Raj. However, all three players play in the K League 2.
<If Halim joins Suwon or Incheon, he would be the only Southeast Asian player currently playing in the K League 1, as reported by Sports Star. Hamidon Selangor’s owner said, “There are no official offers yet. If there is an offer, we will consider it,” he said.
