Transfers, loans and press talk

Transfer activity in Thailand tends to be a lot more hectic than Europe. "Loan" players often end up being permanent transfers without notification and fringe players often change clubs almost randomly.  Meanwhile bigger clubs purposely fan speculation of future signings in contrast to western clubs who at least try to keep transfers under wraps unless they are purposely unsettling a player.

With such a constant scramble, sometimes it's a challenge just to keep track of all the goings on. So then, here is the first of a few updates on transfer activity at MTU.

Confirmed in:
Natarid Thammarossopon - MD training with MTU, but some sources say he's signed for our allied club Suphanburi. (details)

Adan Barakat (details)

Mario Djurovski (details)

Reported in press but yet to be confirmed by MTU:

Thai Port players Mongkol Namnuad and Todsapol Lated (details)

Guti - AM, last at Besitikas
Thai Port player Ekkapoom Potharungroj
Kone Muhamed - FWD, former MTU player, reportedly sold to TOT but now reports state MTU have a recall clause

Confirmed out:
Robbie Fowler - ST, India
Zesh Rehman - CB,Hong Kong

A top MTU player to Europe. No details here as I don't want to fan this particular flame.
Ahnon Sangsanoi - (ST, Korat)

Players "out on loan" with unclear status:
Arthit - RB, Suphanburi (should return)
Ibrahim Striker, at PTT Rayong, supposedly a one season loan but nobody has mentioned him since.
Issoufau - Winger, half season loan at Phuket.
Kittipol Paphunga- MD sent to Suphanburi on a half season loan, no word since that I can recall.
Kaewruang GK at Suphanburi (I think) on a one season loan
