"I've been following the progress of PKNS FC since my Harimau Muda days. I've always been a fan of PKNS FC," he enthused.
When queried on the reason of his return to Malaysia, Nazmi was adamant that he made a conscious and right decision for his footballing future.
"I made the decision to return (to Malaysia) after discussing with my parents and my agent (Marco Guimaraes). This move is good for my future."
Nazmi went on to add that young local players should make the necessary preparations before signing with a foreign club.
"For me, young players should make a thorough background inspection of a football club before joining them. I enjoyed my time at SC Beira-Mar."
His agent, Marco Guimaraes, also confirmed that there were several MSL clubs that were interested in securing Nazmi's services but the youngster chose to join PKNS FC.
Meanwhile, PKNS FC President, Noor Hisham Gouth confirmed that Nazmi has signed a three-year contract with the club and an appeal will be made to FAM regarding his eligibility to play in the MSL immediately.
"He has signed a three-year contract with us and we hope that he'll be available for the match gainst Felda United. We will discuss about his eligibility with the FAM," Noor Hisham said.
The MSL transfer window will only be opened in April. Therefore, Nazmi Faiz will only join the PKNS FC youth team for the time being. Nazmi will wear the number 33 for PKNS FC.
