Ex-ATM defender Amiridzwan Taj is reportedly set to sign for East Coast side Terengganu FA as the Turtles seek to beef up their squad for next year’s Malaysian football calendar.

The tall defender joined Kelantan during the April transfer window earlier this year, and has been a regular fixture at the heart of their defence.

But with the Red Warriors undergoing a severe financial crisis, Amiridzwan Taj’s departure was one that has been widely discussed over the past few weeks.

According to a source, Amiridzwan has principally agreed a deal with Kelantan’s rivals, Terengganu and is set to officially confirm the move by signing the contract, tomorrow [Wednesday, December 2].

Besides him, Terengganu have also sealed the signing of Joseph Kalang Tie – who previously featured for them between 2010 and 2012 – from Sarawak FA.

These acquisitions represent Terengganu’s efforts to significantly boost their squad, after going through a topsy-turvy 2015.

They finished fourth on the MSL table this season, made the semi-finals of the Malaysia FA Cup before getting knocked out in the group stages of the Malaysia Cup, last month.
