KUALA LUMPUR: Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT) and national striker Safawi Rasid (pic) has agreed to play for Thailand club Ratchaburi FC in the Thai League 1 after the Mitsubishi AFF Cup.

JDT technical director Hector Bidoglio confirmed that the 25-year-old will be loaned to Ratchaburi after the next national assignment from Dec 20-Jan 16.

Apart from Safawi, JDT have also reached an agreement to loan their Mali import, Moussa Sidibe to the Thai club.

“The Southern Tigers would like to wish both players good luck for next season,” said Bidoglio in a statement on the club’s official social media site.

Earlier, an international news portal had quoted Ratchaburi FC chairman Tanawat Nitikanchana as saying the club had agreed with JDT to seek the services of Safawi who is also the national skipper.

Safawi who joined JDT from Terengganu in 2017, had also played for Portugal club Portimonense SC on loan for three months in 2021. — Bernama
