The United Football League has released its add list last week ahead of the opening of the league season later today, with college standouts, returnees and overhauling the main talking point of the list.

However, Izo Elhabib became the biggest name on the list, as he is reunted with his brother Badz in Laos after he was surprisingly released by Global a fortnight ago.

The recently crowned Cup holders have also re-signed Mark Hartmann and welcomed back Charley Pettys, but they sent Roland Sadia to Stallion, where Ernie Nierras also added NU's Arnel Casil to their fold.

As the UAAP season coming to its conclusion on the second week of the league campaign, clubs have been able to secure the services of the college standouts ahead of the April 24 deadline as Agila took almost the entire Ateneo roster for the season, with seniors Carlo Liay and Mikko Mabanag being notable exceptions, as the latter returns to Voltes while the former is already in the Kaya's AFC Cup line-up.

FEU Audie and Michael Menzi will go separate ways as they will go to Kaya and Voltes, respectively, as Val Jurao will reunite with Jhan-Jhan Melliza in Green Archers United.

UP's Joseph Fermin, Soheil Bidar and and Anton Yared will team-up together with Pasargad in which they made the biggest overhaul of their lineup after their Cup stint.

Alu Kigbu will be playing for his fifth club in the country, with Nomads snapping up his expertise in playing in the league since its inception in 2009.

Reigning league champions Ceres however, have decided not to add any players, despite speculations that Azkals goalkeeper Roland Muller signed up with the Busmen to bolster their title defense.
