Singapore’s Harun off to Spain on loan

Singapore international Hariss Harun has been sent on a year-long loan to Spanish club Centre d'Esports L'Hospitalet.

It was revealed on his club's Facebook page, Malaysian outfit Johor Darul Ta'zim, that the 26-year-old would spend a year at the Spanish third division club with the hope that he will grow as a player.

In the process, Harum becomes the first Singaporean footballer to play professionally in Spain.

"Hariss will be on a year-long loan… to gain experience and improve the quality of his game," read the Facebook post.

"Without a doubt, this long-term plan will have a positive impact on the club in the future."

Just a week ago it seemed that Harun could be without a club, as JDT had filled up it's foreign import quota while his contract with them only expiring at the end of 2017.

Harum has been a stalwart for the Singapore national side and JDT, earning over 70 caps for each. 

However, what remains unclear is if he will feature for the Lions in their bid to qualify for the 2019 AFC Asian Cup. Singapore are currently in the third round and play Chinese Taipei in June.
