The 31-year-old Silva joins the Southern Tigers after stints with 13 different clubs in a career that spans a decade.

He joins the Malaysia Super League (MSL) leaders after scoring 19 goals in 34 appearances for Al-Batin.

JDT boss Tunku Sultan Ismail (TMJ) had previously iterated that he will significantly boost the squad when the transfer window opens.

The four-time defending league champions are hoping to seal the league for the fifth consecutive time and secure an automatic berth to the AFC Champions League in 2019.
