Malaysian wonderkid Tam Sheang Tsung has completed his move to J-League Division 2 (J2) side, Avispa Fukuoka.

The creative midfielder has been heavily linked with a move to Malaysia Super League (MSL) side Kelantan in the past month, but a move never materialised with the Red Warriors opting to side local players Fitri Omar and national winger Wan Zack Haikal instead.

The 18-year-old winger first made headlines two years ago after appearing for Chinese Super League's Shanghai Shenhua in a friendly against Manchester United at Shanghai Stadium.

Sheang Tsung's fledgling career already boasts an impressive resume which includes playing for the youth team at Yokohama FC and Sagan Tosu, before trialling with English Premier League (EPL) club Cardiff City.

He moved to Fukuoka after a stint with the youth team of another J2 side, Mito Hollyhock. Goal understands that Sheang Tsung will wear the number 26 jersey with his new club.

With Wan Zack returning to the MSL, Tam Sheang Tsung will be the only active Malaysian player to be playing in a foreign league.
