Regime change sees City terminate Thais

Manchester City are poised to sever ties with three Thailand internationals purchased under the previous regime.

Suree Sukha, Teerasil Dangda and Kiatprawut Saiwaew were signed by City last November in what was widely believed to be a political move by former Thai prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra, the then billionaire owner of the club, four weeks out from an election in his homeland.

The trio were denied work permits with Suree and Teerasil sent on loan to Grasshoppers Zurich in Switzerland and Kiatprawut farmed out to Belgian side Club Brugge.

The players joined up with City for a post-season tour match in the Thai capital Bangkok, but, following Thaksin's departure as owner - the club were taken over by Abu Dhabi United on September 1 - have now been deemed surplus to requirements.

"It is officially confirmed that the trio's contracts have been terminated," Jimmy Haewsanti, marketing manager of Manchester City (Thailand) told the Bangkok Post.

"We tried our best but failed to get work permits for them."

Suree, who said the termination will take effect next month, added: "The new owner from the UAE wants to support players from his country."
