John signs for Chonburi, gives Sharks more options
Thai League 1 side Chonburi have landed striker Jaycee John from Thai League 2 club Khon Kaen United, his new team announced on Tuesday.
It was the last major signing in the transfer window, which closed on Tuesday.
Chonburi manager Sasin Singtothong said John would give the Sharks more options in attack in the second half of the season.
"He has already begun training with us. He has previously worked with our coach Sasom [Pobprasert] so he should easily be able to adapt himself to the coach's tactics," Sasin said.
All league matches scheduled for this month have been postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Meanwhile, Thailand goalkeeper Kawin Thamsatchanan failed to strike a deal with a Thai club and will return to Belgium's OH Leuven.
Kawin, 30, hoped to play for a Thai team after an unsuccessful loan spell at Japan's Consadole Sapporo.
Reports said he and his former club SCG Muang Thong United could not reach an agreement before the transfer window closed. Kawin has two years left on his contract with OH Leuven, owned by Thailand's King Power Group.
