The highest class football league in Indonesia, League 1 season 2021-2022, has officially ended. Bali United won as winners because their points were not overtaken.

Indonesian League 1 Transfer Exchange

Hansamu Yama will be contracted by Persija for one season. Team Capital, who struggled in League 1 last year, are expected to benefit from his addition as support to their defensive unit.

"Persija is a big team in Indonesia with a myriad of achievements. Both, all players in Indonesia definitely want to join Persija," said Hansamu, quoted from the Persija website.

“I am one of the lucky ones to get this opportunity. I will not waste it. That's why I'm interested in being part of Persija," he added.

Otavio Dutra and Maman Abdurrahman, Persija's two most reliable defenders, are both out of their best form at the moment.

Meanwhile, Ryuji Utomo, who is still relatively young at his golden age, looks worried because he often makes mistakes in several matches in League 1.

Hansamu Yama himself is Persija Jakarta's third recruit, having previously brought in Hanis Sjahbandi and Firza Andika some time ago.
