MSL champions Johor Darul Ta'zim (JDT) have announced the departure of three local players, but insisted that no players have the intention to leave the club.

Chief Scout and JDT Foreign Delegation Representative, Martin Prest stated that players would only leave the JDT football club if they are no longer needed and not in JDT’s plan for the future.

Commenting on the rumors on how JDT keep signing new players and that the current players are trying to leave the club, Prest said none of their players want to leave a club with such reputation.

Prest was quoted by the club's social media as saying: “This is the most professional club in the region. Players play under a good philosophy and structure. They are paid the best salaries and they play in international competitions.”

“No player in this region want to leave JDT or the JDT system. It is the only team in the country that has a plan to grow in terms of its philosophy with strong financial stability for the next 30 years.”

“So when a player decides to leave, it is because the club allows them to because they're services are no longer needed and no longer part of our plan,” added Prest.

JDT also officially confirmed the release of three players, Nazrin Nawi, Jasazrin Jamaludin and Amri Yahyah.

Both Nazrin Nawi and Jasazrin Jamaludin will play for Perak next season, with the Southern Tigers claiming that they initially asked Perak for RM 1.5 million in order to release the duo, before reducing the transfer fee to an unspecified amount.

For Amri Yahyah, the MSL champions have decided not to renew the national team captain's contract and the veteran striker is reportedly set to join Super League newcomers, Melaka United next season.
