More S'pore internationals linked with ISL

Withe the Indonesian Super Liga 3+2 rules coming up next season, it seem virtually the entire S'pore national team is linked with Indonesian clubs even it may not be the case.

Like SAFFC Aleksandar Duric who was linked with a move to ISL but the 39-year-old was quick to rebut that as rumors as he has never been approached by any ISL teams.

But others may be true as Persija Jakarta has send their Technical Director Benny Dollo to S'pore to view players and the ISL club have thus far been linked with Tampines Rover striker Khariul Amri and winger Ridhuan Muhammad, Geylang United defender Baihakki Khaizan (They are competing with Arema Malang for his signature) and SAFFC defender Saiful Esah.

Persija Jakarta has a budget of S$4.5 million next season according to SPH Straits Times.

Even newcomer to the ISL, Persisam Samarinda, who was the Indonesian Prima Liga (Indonesia lower division) champions last season, has approached Sengkang Punggol striker Indra Sahdan but the 30-year-old has rejected any approach that will see him leaving S'pore as he is currently studying and does not want any distractions.

I certainly hope the boys will live up to the expectations and don't make us "malu".. the doing without a trial for these guys before signing must be either these boys had made it OR it's just being convenience?? I dunno
