There's nothing better than a bit of football transfer gossip and the word on the street is that 4 players who were plying their trade in the Metfone C-League last season, have been snapped up on contracts ahead of the new season that kicks-off next month in the Thailand 1st Division. They include 3 players who appeared for Phnom Penh Crown last season, with top scorer Uche Prince Justine (pictured) hooking up with the C-League's top scorer last term with 25 goals, Kirivong's Julius Ononiwu, at Chula United. That means Chula have the two best marksmen over the last two seasons in Cambodia on their roster. The other two former Crown players who will be donning the kit of a Thai team next month will be Sani Saidu and Friday Nwakuna, who have joined the 'Fighting Bulls' at Songkhla FC. No news as yet on other players who were strutting their stuff in the C-League last season and who have been conspicuous by their absence this time around.
