Eight clubs from Southeast Asia are finalizing their preparation for 2016 AFC Champions League. Football Channel Asia takes a look at their foreigners recruitment ahead of the continental campaign.


Jermain Pennant – Tampines Rovers (Singapore)

S-League runners-up Tampines Rover will begin their 2016 AFC Champions League campaign at Preliminary round 1 with the match against Mohun Bagan of India on January 27.

The Stags have prepared early for this match with two new foreigners Kwon Jun and Jordan Webb, before securing the service of former Liverpool winger Jermaine Pennant which was certainly their biggest signing ahead of new season. Although Pennant is not registered in time for Mohun Bagan clash, he could take part in ACL actions if the Singaporean club reaches later stages.

Singaporean outfit are looking to sign one more foreigner to complete their foreigners quota.
