Melaka United FC

Arguably the biggest move in this round-up as MUFC penned a deal with Tam Sheang Tsung. The 20-year-old winger has a colourful career despite his young age. Born in Japan to Malaysian parents, Tam started with Mito Hollyhock before a big move to Chinese Super League side, Shanghai Shenhua in 2012. However this has been on a downhill slide since then and Tam was last contracted to Gainare Tottori in J3 League in Japan. Still young enough to rediscover his ways, Tam could be an exciting addition to Eric Williams' squad.

Kedah

The Malaysia Cup champions have moved to secure the signing of Akram Mahinan from Johor Darul Ta'zim II. The midfielder was once on the radar of the national team but a less than memorable 2016 season hurt his chances there. Former Penang player, Fitri Omar will join Akram in the North in the 2017 season. Fitri was previously on the books of ATM and Kelantan, is capable of operating on the left hand side either in as a full back or a winger.

PKNS FC

The revamp of the PKNS team continues as they announced eight more new signings, most notably bringing back K. Gurusamy to the Selangor state. The one-time lynchpin of Malaysia's midfield, a series of injuries have curtailed his career but Gurusamy will be hoping that it won't be another false dawn this time around. Former captain Fauzan Dzulkifli has also returned to the club after his sojourn with Penang as seasoned left back, Azmi Muslim moves from Selangor to PKNS. Following them are Zamir Selamat (from Perak), Affizee Mamat (from Terengganu), Bobby Gonzales (from Felda), S. Sivanesan (from Felda) and Sabree Mat Abu (from Kedah).
