With the departure of Niklas Sandberg, SAFFC have been linked with Croatian midfielder Ivan Jerkovic, who played for Brunei DPMM in the S-League last year.
The 31-year-old Jerkovic impressed with 12 goals in 31 games in all competitions for Brunei DPMM. He also helped the club become the first foreign team to lift the League Cup.
Kok confirmed the club's interest in Jerkovic, but was coy when asked to comment further.
'It is true we are getting another player so that we will not be weakened by the loss of Niklas, and he (Jerkovic) is one of the players we are looking at,' he said.
But there are another two weeks to go to June, and with these things, whatever can go wrong might go wrong. Until the player signs on the dotted line, only time will tell.'
