Evan Dimas turns down Chonburi for Selangor FA

Indonesian young star Evan Dimas has rejected a transfer to Chonburi FC as he considers a move to Selangor FA.

“We have been working on Evan Dimas’ transfer for long time and have met the principal agreements,” Jeerasak Chomthong, Chonburi’s director of media told Goal.

“But, there is an offer from a Malaysian club. The came to double the wage which we already offered to Evan Dimas, so he decided to join them.”

Several sources reported that Evan Dimas will join Selangor along with his Bhayangkara team-mate Ilham Udin Armayn.
