The Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) has released a statement saying Norshahrul's contract buy out issue has been resolved already. They made it clear that there is no more contract issue for the former Kelantan striker, and his status with new team Johor Darul Takzim FC has been finalised.
FAM's Players Status Committee chairman, Datuk Takiyuddin Hassan, said the issue has been resolved since the national striker has already paid the RM299,000 demanded by Kelantan Football Association (KAFA)
Speaking to Bernama, Takiyuddin said that based on FAM's record, Norshahrul had made two payments to buy out his contract from Kelantan through a bank draft.
The first payment was RM250,000, which was paid to KAFA on Jan 4 2013, and the second payment of RM49,000 was issued a day later. "We have received the payment details from Norshahrul's lawyer," he added.
Recently, media reports had claimed that KAFA president, Tan Sri Annuar Musa, had asked 2012 M-League season's MVP to pay RM1 million to resolve his transfer to Johor Darul Takzim.
