Kalba: Ittihad Kalba have signed Colombian striker Tommy Tobar on a one-year free transfer from Venezuelan side Carabobo.

Fabio Viviani had earlier replaced Jorvan Vieira as coach just one game into the new season.

Viviani then went about changing Croatian striker Antonin Perosevic for Brazilian forward Myke Ramos from Hungary’s MTK Budapest.

Tobar’s arrival is now thought to act as a replacement for Nigerian midfielder Raheem Lawal, who broke his ankle in the club’s opening cup game against Al Wasl last week.
