Striker Dragan Boskovic has joined Thai League 1 side Chonburi, the Sharks announced on Tuesday.

The Montenegrin, who was a free agent after playing for Port last season, said he is grateful to Chonburi's executives and coaches for putting their trust in him.

He had trained with Chonburi for two weeks before they signed a contract on Tuesday.

"I want to thank them for giving me the chance to join the team," said the forward.

"I am very happy and excited to get the chance of playing in Thai League 1 next season. I am ready to play for Chonburi.

"Chonburi are a good team. They have many good players, including the young ones from their academy. Every player is determined to become successful. I am now a Chonburi player and I will do my best to help bring success to the club."

Boskovic, 34, began his career in Thailand with Suphanburi before moving to Bangkok United and then Port.

He was in top form at Bangkok United in 2017 when he won the top scoring award with 38 goals.

At Chonburi, he will team up with Thai veteran forward Teerathep Winothai, also his teammate at Bangkok United.

Meanwhile, former Buriram United striker Pedro Junior have joined Thai League 1 club Samut Prakan City.

Following an unsuccessful spell at Buriram in the first leg of last season, the Brazilian moved to Khor Fakkan in the first division of the United Arab Emirates before returning to Thailand.

"I am happy to be back in Thailand and work with Japanese coach Masatada Ishii," the striker said.

They worked together at Japan's Kashima Antlers, who won the AFC Champions League in 2018.
