Kitchee are delighted to confirm the signing of Tan Chun Lok. The new-no. 16-midfielder put pen to paper on a two-year deal that will keep him at the club until 2025.

“Coach Alex and I have already known each other since I was young, and I am very grateful to have this opportunity to play for Kitchee. Apart from that, the facilities and all that are part of the reasons why I am here. I will try my very best in training and picking up my pace as soon as possible in order to play in the AFC Champions League, and ultimately, winning trophies for Kitchee.” Tan expressed his desires after confirming his transfer.
