The closing date for the Malaysian Hockey League is on the last day of January with the tournament scheduled to commence on March 22 till May 12.
But the "market" so as to speak is abuzz with news of players switching clubs.
Akin to Manchester City which has deep pockets is Terengganu who have confirmed the signing of former Sapura player Jivan Mohan.
That is not all for KLHC seem to have to bear the brunt of Terengganu's purchasing power with players in the likes of Fitri Saari and Mohd Nabil Shahrun both targetted as well.
And there is also news that the East Coast team, with a budget of RM2 million will also be signing up from KLHC the likes of Roslan Jamaluddin, Nabil Fiqri Mohd Nor, Ismail Abu, Azlan Misron and Tengku Ahmad Tajuddin.
Another player in the Terengganu radar, Mohd Razie Abd Rahim is said to have made a U turn.
The catch by Terengganu is a monthly salary of RM7, 000 with a year long contract and an option of two years.
Sapura also lost keeper Mohd Khairul and are set to lose Izwan Firdaus Ahmad Tajuddin to KLHC.
