The question for where Noh Alam Shah will be playing after choosing to resign from Arema appears to have been answered. Persib Bandung is touted to be the Singapore forward's next club.
Previously Noh Alam had protested that his presence in Bandung with fellow player Leonard Tupamahu in Bandung was not for business. He reasoned that his departure to the city was to play golf.
However, a statement from his close friend, Muhammad Ridhuan appears to have answered questions on his future. The Singaporean winger with Arema in the Indonesian Super League revealed that Noh Alam has tranferred to Persib with Leonard Tupamahu.
"I will not pull Alam Shah to Arema because he's already in Persib with Leo," said M Ridhuan when he was met at the offices of Arema, Kertanegara Road, Kota Malang, on Thursday March 8.
"He has now settled in Bandung.
"Along will return to Malang tomorrow, to meet [Persib player] Dendi [Santoso]."
The statement from Ridhuan also dashed hopes of fans in Arema who had hoped to see Noh Alam Shah return to play for the Arema club contesting in the Indonesian Super League, after resigning from the other Arema in the rival Indonesian Premier League.
