Stay up to date with all of the latest transfer news from the Thai League on Football Tribe

After an impressive seventh place finish last season, Nakhon Ratchasima are looking to further strengthen their squad’s attacking capabilities. Football Tribe’s Thai League Coach of the Year Milos Joksic aims to build a squad capable of hurting teams on the counter-attack, and hopes his new acquisitions will hold the key. Ivorian winger Amadou Ouattara joins the club from relegated Siam Navy FC, and will be joined by his countryman Bernard Doumbia, who turned out for Chainat Hornbill FC last year. Lastly, the side have also added former Buriram and Muangthong attacker Chitchanok Xaysensourinthone to their squad for next season, who joins them from Swiss second-tier side FC Chiasso, in the country of his birth.

Chiangrai United continue to deal with an exodus of their star players, as Pathompol Charoenrattanapirom is the latest player to club, joining Police Tero in the second division. In response, the club have signed former Thai international Gionata Verzura from Ratchaburi, Brazilian center-back Brinner Henrique from Ubon United and midfielder Peerapong Pichitchotirat from BG Pathum United.

Some of the newly promoted sides have also become active in the transfer market recently. PTT Rayong have greatly bolstered their squad by signing Chiangrai United captain Victor Cardozo, and Pathum United stars Sarawut Masuk and Ariel Rodriquez. Meanwhile, Trat FC have secured the services of Guinea international Lonsana Doumbouya, who joins the club from Prachuap FC, alongside Chainat’s Bireme Diouf and Ratchaburi’s Pratum Chuthong. Japanese attacking midfielder Yuki Bamba has departed the club, and will be linking up with former coach Dusit Chalermsan at BG Pathum United.
