There will be no poaching of crocs, or in this case, no poaching of a Crocs player. Junior Eldstal's name has been linked in the rumour mill with a move to Johor Darul Ta'zim but that link has been quickly brushed aside by the aforementioned team.

On the official Facebook page of JDT and on the behest of Football Association of Johor (PBNJ), produced a denial as to the possibility of Eldstal moving to join the Southern Tigers. PBNJ stressed that no discussion or offer have been made to Eldstal for him to join either the JDT I or JDT II teams.

Eldstal has been ever present in the national squad set-up since his debut in the Malaysian footballing scene for Sarawak. He was the winner of the Most Promising Player award in 2013.
There was also a suggestion that this rumour was spread in the off chance that it could hinder the prospect of DYAM Tunku Ismail Ibni Sultan Ibrahim, Tunku Mahkota Johor (TMJ) in the upcoming Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) presidency election. TMJ is set to run against incumbent Sultan Ahmad Shah and Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah.
