Perak have announced the signings of former Selangor midfielder Leandro Dos Santos and Kelantan forward Gilmar Jose da Silva Filho.

According to a press statement issued by the Bos Gaurus, both of them will replace pre-season foreign signings Faton Toski and Vladislav Mirchev.

28-year old Gilmar was a mid-season signing for the Red Warriors in 2015, before joining Sarawak for the 2016 season.

30-year old Dos Santos meanwhile played for T-Team in 2014, before joining the Red Giants for the 2015 season, helping them capture their historic 33rd Malaysia Cup title. At Perak he will be reunited with his former boss at Selangor; Mehmet Durakovic.


Super League strugglers Pulau Pinang meanwhile have announced the signing of Philippines international Mark Hartmann. Hartmann had joined Sarawak in the first half of the season, but departed Kuching when the mid-season transfer window opened.

They too have signed American Guamanian defender Brandon McDonald, who used to play in the Major League Soccer in the United States, from 2008 to 2013.


Premier League leaders Negeri Sembilan meanwhile fielded former Sabah forward Jonathan Behe in their friendly against PKNS FC on Wednesday. The Frenchman, who was a pre-season signing for the Rhinos, featured in the match in a kit with his name printed on the back, which strongly suggests that the transfer has been finalised. 


T-Team on Wednesday announced three local signings. They are Premier League side MISC-MIFA captain Ooi Shee Keong, Terengganu midfielder and former T-Team star Asrol Ibrahim, and Melaka United midfielder Syed Sobri Syed Mohd.
