The Covid-19 pandemic can't stop Port FC from strengthening their squad.

Port have signed Thailand defender Adisorn Promrak from fellow Thai League 1 side Muang Thong United, Siam Sport reported on its website on Friday.

The veracity of the transfer cannot be questioned since Siam Sport bosses own former Thai League 1 champions Muang Thong.

Before moving to Muang Thong, Adisorn, 26, played for Army United and BEC Tero Sasana.

At Port, he will join his Thailand teammates Tanaboon Kesarat, Charyl Chappuis, Nitipong Selanon and Adisak Kraisorn as well as Brazilian striker Heberty Fernandes.

Port chairwoman Nualphan Lamsam is believed to be close to Muang Thong bosses as her Klong Toey-based club has signed several players from the Kirins on permanent basis or on loan, including Adisorn, Chappuis, Adisak and Heberty.

Port were joint third in Thai League 1 after four games when the season was suspended in March due to the coronavirus outbreak.

They and BG Pathum United have 10 points, two behind pacesetters Bangkok United and Ratchaburi.

Struggling Muang Thong are seventh on six points.

During the halt, Port sacked coach Choketawee Promrut and brought back former boss Jadet Meelarp.

Port won the FA Cup last season for their first trophy in a decade, and Nualphan now eyes the Thai League 1 title.

The league season will resume in September.
