Kirins' Sarach won't rule out Johor move

Thailand midfielder Sarach Yooyen says he is happy with his club Muang Thong United but won't rule out a move.

Muang Thong United's Sarach Yooyen takes part in a training session.

The 27-year-old star is reportedly a target of Malaysian Super League champions Johor Darul Ta'Zim, who want a midfielder to replace Singapore's Hariss Harul.

"It is interesting that I have been linked to a big club like Johor who have several good players and a big stadium," Sarach said. "But I am happy with Muang Thong."

He said he and the club had not received any formal offer from the Malaysian team.

"At this stage, it is just a rumour. But Muang Thong's board would make a decision [if they receive an offer]."

He said the Kirins are in the right direction to bring back glory as they have used a number of young stars from their own acdemy.

His contract with Muang Thong expires next year.

Sarach has won two league and cup titles since joining Muang Thong in 2010. However, the Kirins have been struggling over the past few seasons.

They were seventh with only six points from four Thai League 1 games before the season was suspended in March due to the Covid-19 outbreak. The 2020 campaign will resume in September.

Over the past few years, Muang Thong have sold or loaned several key players to foreign clubs including Chanathip Songkrasin, Theerathon Bunmathan and Teerasil Dangda, who are all playing in Japan.
