Jorge Santos Silva joins Fujairah FC in UAE

Johor Southern Tigers
Unwanted by Johor Darul Ta'zim, Silva will now spend at least one year with the club in the UAE Division One.

It was a short-lived experience for Silva at JDT as he only lasted four matches with The Southern Tigers before finding his place in the squad taken over by Fernando Elizari.

With JDT taking no chances in their push to win the 2018 Malaysia Super League title that comes with a prized path into the group stage of the 2019 AFC Champions League, Silva's inability to start his time with JDT on fire has cost him.

Despite scoring his first ever goal in the crucial 2-0 win over Perak at Tan Sri Dato Haji Hassan Yunos Stadium, the decision has already been made on him.

United Arab Emirates club Fujairah FC will now be his new home in what is supposed to be loan deal until June 2019, as indicated by Transfermarkt.

The 31-year-old Brazilian is no stranger to the Middle East scene having previously played for Al-Batin in Saudi Arabia.
