Selangor on Monday announced their line-up for the 2018 season, which included what seems to be their final foreign signing for the coming season.

The Red Giants released a video on their social media accounts, listing the players they have signed or retained for 2018.

Interestingly, the list also included former Persija Jakarta centre-back Wilian Pacheco. Selangor head coach Maniam Pachaiappan on Thursday had told Goal that they were on the verge of signing the 25-year old.

With the Brazilian's signing, the Red Giants have fulfilled all the foreign player slots they intend to use. Maniam also told Goal that they would only be signing four foreigners this season, as opposed to the maximum allowed five.

On Saturday they were revealed to have completed the signings of Indonesian duo Evan Dimas Darmono and Ilham Udin Armaiyn from Bhayangkara FC, while underrated Spanish striker Rufino Segovia's contract had been extend for 2018, late last month.

The list also revealed that evergreen striker Amri Yahyah will be wearing number 17 again. He had used that number almost exclusively throughout his career at both club and national level, but when he returned to Selangor in the middle of the 2016 season, the number was already used by defender Rizal Fahmi Rosid. With Rizal having announced that he is joining Negeri Sembilan for 2018, Amri is free to reclaim the kit number.
