Asian Football Confederation Cup debutants TSW Pegasus have signed Taiwan captain Chen Po-Liang to strengthen their squad. Chen, who has been in town for a two-week trial, will register as an Asian foreign player for the team. The regional cup competition allows each team a quota of four foreign players, but one must come from Asia. The 22-year-old midfielder was named the best player of Taiwan's amateur league for seasons 2008 and 2009. He has also been on trial with J.League sides Yokohama F-Marinos and FC Gifu.
