Wan Zaharulnizam to join Kelantan

Harimau Muda ‘A’ have released Wan Zaharulnizam Wan Zakaria to initiate his move to join his hometown side Kelantan for the M-League next season.

Wan Zaharulnizam Wan Zakaria will pen a deal with Kelantan and join the Red Warriors for the M-League in the 2014 season.

Harimau Muda ‘A’ head coach, Ong Kim Swee, revealed that the 22-year-old winger will leave the national developmental side and join his hometown team, Astro Arena reported.

Ong also added that there are nine other players who are pending their release from the Young Tigers’ outfit and he will address them once he returns to Malaysia.

Despite the fact that Zaharulnizam has been a key factor in Harimau Muda’s success, the 42-year-old coach is delighted that his players are sought after by big clubs.

In other transfer news, Young Tigers’ custodian Izham Tarmizi Roslan has confirmed his move to Johor Darul Takzim.

His transfer to the Southern Tigers will be a tough one as he has to challenge for a first-XI spot against the country's top goalkeepers in Muhammad Al-Hafiz and Norazlan Razali.
