thumbnail Hello,

The former Singapore international has been on trial with Persebaya Surabaya with a view to signing a full-time contract

Former LionsXII striker Agu Casmir has been training with Indonesia Super League (ISL) club Persebaya Surabaya after being offered a trial with the club.

Persebaya are looking to offer the ex-Singapore international a full-time contract to fulfil their Asian foreign quota for the ISL in 2014.

"There was an Asian player in the last training team, Agu Casmir, an African-born player but naturalised by Singapore," said Amran Said Ali, assistant coach of Persebaya.

However, at present, nothing has been confirmed with Persebaya’s head coach yet to make a final decision on Agu.

"For the further development, we will let the coach decide because he wasn't involved in a full training and the coach also didn't get any recommendation to sign an additional player," Amran added.

Nigeria-born Agu has played in Indonesia previously for Persija Jakarta in 2011 and was last with the LionsXII, where he was released from at the end of the 2012 Malaysian Super League (MSL) season.

He has also represented Gombak United, Woodlands Wellington and the Young Lions in the S.League, as well as for MSL side PDPRM FA.

Having also become a naturalised Singaporean in 2004, Agu represented Singapore 14 times, scoring once.
