The 27-year-old Kawin Thamsatchanan is the Thai club SCG Muangthong United Football Club. He is the captain of the national team, for whom he is sixty times over.

He spoke also very enthusiastic about the game of OHL and the fans during the match on Sunday and promised “to work hard to develop themselves and the OHL fans to please”.
Samy Kehli is a 26-year-old Frenchman with Algerian roots who, until the end of the season is rented from the city of Lokeren. He played previously for clubs like Metz, Virton and Roeselare and made Sunday against Union an excellent impression.
Coach Nigel Pearson showed himself to be just like Chris Vandebroeck very pleased with the arrival of both players. Pearson said that OHL, both at home and abroad on the alert is to attract the players that the team quality can strengthen. “It is not only to achieve results in the short term, but also to expansion of the team in the long term”.
