Former Manchester United midfielder Eric Djemba-Djemba is set to move to newly promoted Thailand club Air Force United.

Air Force United, one of the most successful Thai football clubs in history, recently confirmed that they are preparing to start negotiations with Djemba-Djemba, who currently plays for Serbian SuperLiga club Partizan.

Air Force United’s Marketing Director Kasemsak Mingsopha revealed the news exclusively to Goal Thailand recently.

'The player is looking for a career in Asia, and we're ready to negotiate,” he said.

“If Narasak Boonkliang (Air Force United head coach) feels he's in good condition and fits into our system, the board of directors is ready to support him."

Djemba-Djemba rose to prominence when he signed for English giants Manchester United in 2003 from French outfit Nantes.

The Cameroonian then moved to Aston Villa in 2005 before being loaned out to Burnley, and he has since had playing spells in Qatar, Denmark, Israel and currently Serbia.

The 32-year-old was also part of the squad that won the 2002 African Nations Cup, and he represented Cameroon in the 2002 FIFA World Cup as well.
