Telekom S-League’s mid-season transfer window has not opened yet but teams are already trying to bring new players to strengthen their squads for the second round of the major football league from Solomon Islands.
Currently in the seventh position with twelve points in nine matches, Kossa’s season is worse than expected. Despite counting on great forwards like Barrie Limoki, Harrison Mala, James Naka and Lore Fonaota in the squad, the team coached by Fred Osifelo faces defensive problems that prevented the team from getting better results in the season.
Kossa’s defense must receive a big boost for the second round of the season as Richard Hiromana is set to rejoin the team in the mid-season transfer window, which will open on October 26. Hiromana is a 23-year-old defender who has played eleven matches for Solomon Islands National Football Team.
Another player who is expected to strengthen Kossa’s squad for the remainder of the season is former international Himson Teleda. He is a 28-year-old winger and he represented Solomon Islands at 2012 OFC Nations Cup.
According to team’s media, both players will have their first training session with the team this week: “They are here and ready to train. Both Teleda and Hiromana will join the team,” said team manager Mark Danny. Kossa’s next match will be against Central Coast FC on Sunday.
