Selangor and Kelantan finally get their mid-season foreign affairs underway

As reported by Goal, ATM have finally agreed terms with their top transfer target, South Korean defender Park Yong-Ho and he will be fielded this Saturday in their match against Kelantan. The 33-year old will be replacing Spase Dilevski, and the deal is reported by Harian Metro to run for eight months.
The Red Giants' fans are surely antsy as to the latest updates on their team's interest in prospect Nazmi Faiz. However that seems to be on the backburner for the time being, as Selangor have reportedly signed two South Americans, if a picture posted by Selangor's inside source on Twitter @frman123 is anything to go by.

The picture shows Selangor FA sec-gen Rosman Ibrahim with two men, with the caption (written by frman123) identifying the men as defender Evaldo Silva and striker Cleber Barbos.
Little is known regarding the duo, but if both of them have been signed been Selangor, all signs are pointing to the imminent exit of Australian defender Stephen Pantelidis and Brazilian forward Junior Aparecido, who have failed to shine for them. Meanwhile striker Paulo Rangel has been exemplary, whereas Indonesian Andik Vermansyah is a fan favourite and is their Asian quota.
KAFA president Annuar Musa on Tuesday uploaded a picture of him with an African man on his Facebook fan page. Although no caption was included with the photo, a fan identified the man in the comments section as 27-year old Ghanian striker Prince Tagoe.
This hints at the idea that the Red Warriors are looking to replace their foreign players, after a string of dissapointing results that culminated in their early exit from the 2014 AFC Cup on Tuesday night.
Tagoe formerly played for UAE's Al Shabab, 1899 Hoffenheim and Turkey's Bursaspor. He has made 36 appearances for the Ghana national team, including Ghana's three group matches in the 2010 World Cup.
