Zambian striker Zacharia Simukonda who played for Perlis in the 2007 M-League season is set to join T-Team for next year.
T-Team coach Yunus Alif said the 28-year-old striker who had played a prominent role in Perlis' rise back in 2007 would be signed.
"Zacharia has passed the test and he meets the criteria set by us. Another import player will be tested next week," he told Bernama here today.
Yunus was confident with the ability of Zacharia who was representing the Red Arrows club, Zambia after a playing stint with Al-Faizaly club in the Jordan league from 2009-2010.
Meanwhile, T-Team will also sign nine new players to replace players who had moved to other teams for the 2012 season, especially Indra Putra Mahayuddin, Mohd Nor Farhan Mohamad and Azizi Matt Rose.
He said the three players who helped T'Team to establish itself as a power to be reckoned with last season had moved to Kelantan, the Super League champion who will compete in the Asian clubs (AFC Cup) championship next year.
He said the nine new players comprised of three players each from Selangor, Perlis and Terengganu respectively.
Yunus added that T-Team would play a friendly match with Selangor next month to test the compatibility of his new signings.
