FORWARD Luqman Hakim Shamsudin was supposed to head to Cardiff City for a stint earlier this month, but instead, he is now training with Selangor.

His trip to Cardiff City has been moved to Feb 27 as it is learnt that national Under-19 coach Brad Maloney wants him for centralised training.

Luqman will join Belgian side KV Kortrijk on a five-year contract on March 17 after his training stint in Cardiff.

‘I was told that I will only be leaving sometime in February as I need to answer a national call-up soon. But so far I have not heard anything.

‘Currently, I am training with the Selangor team,” said Luqman, who turns 18 on March 5.

A source claimed that the FA of Malaysia (FAM) have not confirmed whether Luqman will be joining Maloney’s centralised training.

Another source said his trip to Cardiff has been delayed due to visa issues.

Players with a visitor’s visa cannot train and play for a club there.

Luqman made headlines last year when KV Kortrijk agreed to sign him for five years after watching match videos of the player.
