Malaysian national soccer team forward Faisal Halim is being linked with a move to the K League. Suwon Samsung and Incheon United have been mentioned as possible destinations.
Winger Halim, who plays for Malaysian club Selangor FC, has recently been targeted by K League clubs, with Suwon and Incheon reportedly interested in signing him, according to Indonesian 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.
Halim, 25, made his professional debut with Feyenoord in 2015 and has been with Selangor since the 2021 season after stints with Sri Pahang and Terengganu. He has 10 goals in 21 appearances for the Malaysian national team. He has scored ten of his goals in A-matches since Kim Pang Gon took over as coach, making him the ‘crown prince of Kim Pang Gon’ in Malaysia.
There are several players from Southeast Asia currently playing in the K League. Jeonnam Dragons has Indonesian international Asnawi Mangkualam, Seoul Eland has Vietnamese international Nguyen Van Thoan, and Chungbuk Cheongju FC has Malaysian international striker Kogileswaran Raj. However, all three players play in the K League 2.먹튀검증
