Popular website headlines.yahoo.co.jp said crafty Thai playmaker Chanathip, who plays for Consadole Sapporo, and Yokohama F Marinos left wing back Theerathon were in the team.

Chanathip played 28 matches and scored four goals with seven assists for Sapporo who finished 10th last season.

Meanwhile, PT Prachuap have confirmed they are ready to take part in the Asean Club Championship when the delayed tournament is staged next year.

The competition was scheduled to take place next month but was postponed by the Asean Football Federation (AFF) because of the novel coronavirus pandemic.

PT Prachuap director Yutthachai Pariyawatee said: “We don’t want to miss this tournament because it is an honour for our team. When the time comes, we will be ready for it.”

The tournament will have a total of 12 teams, including two from Thailand with the other side being Chiang Rai United (Thai League 1 winners).
