29-year-old former Korean international Park Yo-Seb, who could have played in the S-league if the Yishun Super Reds bid was successful, has been given another opportunity.
Tampines Rovers have arranged a trial for him at the club today.
The Stags have not completed their foreign quota as the spot was meant to be reserved for Thai international Sutee , who had promised to return to the club if he could get a full contract from A-league Melbourne Victory, but he backtracked on his words to sign with Bangkok Glass.
At the same time, the other 3 Koreans - Seo Su Jong, Park Kang Jin and Kim Seong Kyu - with Yishun Super Reds looked set to join the Young Lions who have arranged a trial in a pre-season friendly against AFC Cup-bound Geylang United.
The Young Lions won 1-0 and the three Koreans did enough to impress according to head coach V Sundramoorthy.
The former Singapore international say: "They are good players and they'll be joining us for training from (today) onwards so we can get a better look at them."
Added assistant coach Terry Pathmanathan: "They have shown a lot of maturity ... it's a pity they are struggling to find a club because they will do well at the S-League level."
Yishun Super Reds chairman Charlie Yoon was pleased his Korean charges looked set to be recruited by S-league clubs as he was quoted: "I'm extremely grateful to the Young Lions and Tampines for giving our four foreign players a look."
