Former Liverpool fan favorite Robbie Fowler has arrived in Bangkok to sign a contract to play for Thai Premier League side Muangthong United after announcing last month that he would not renew his contract with Perth Glowry in Australia.

The former England striker will have a medical on Saturday, followed by a Sunday news conference.

Speaking briefly to reporters Friday at Bangkok's international airport, the 36-year-old Fowler said the Thai offer was an opportunity and a new challenge for him.
