“There has been talk of meetings with the BEC Tero and I can say we have completed the 95 percent of the deal,” Greg told Goal.
Greg, who previously had a stint in Thailand with Chiangrai United, expressed his desire to get the second chance to pursue another campaign in the Thai’s top tier league.
“I have played in Thailand before and they have an automatic spot for the Asian Champions League. Thai league is also better [than Indonesia]. I hope it will give a great experience for me,” he added.
