MARK Hartmann has taken his talent overseas as he has signed with Singapore League side Geylang International FC.

The Azkals striker has transferred from Global FC, becoming the first Filipino to play in the S. League.

The 24-year-old Filipino-British booter, the 2014 United Football League Gold Boot award winner, bolsters a former S. League champion side led by Singapore national team standouts Gabriel Quak, Sahil Suaimi, and Amy Recha.

“Geylang International FC would like to thank Global FC for their kind assistance in the true spirit of ASEAN cooperation to ensure the successful completion of this transfer,” the team said in a post on their Facebook account.
