The seven-time MSL champions have already bid goodbye to star striker Diogo Luis Santo who arrived in the 2018 season and has contributed to the Southern Tigers' continued stranglehold on the league title. In terms of incoming, talented midfielder Danial Amier from Felda United has been signed on a free transfer while Syahrian Abimanyu became the club's first Indonesian player but an immediate loan out is already being targeted for the 21-year-old.
