HCM CITY (VNS) — Halfback Bui Tien Dung of Viettel club will soon start play for V.League 1's Hoang Anh Gia Lai (HAGL) under a recent loan agreement.
"HAGL's boss, Doan Nguyen Duc, had a talk with Viettel's leaders and the two sides reached an agreement that will have Dung playing for HAGL for the second leg of the national premier league until the annual tournament finishes," said Nguyen Tan Anh, HAGL's football group leader.
Details of the agreement were not revealed, however, according to Anh, recruiting Dung cost Doan Nguyen Duc a lot of time and effort.
Dung, born in the central province of Ha Tinh, grew up with the Viettel club, playing in their Second Division to later become a key player for Viettel. Last year he gave a star performance on the national U19 team.
At present, Dung is gathering with the national U23 team to prepare for the 2016 AFC U-23 Championship qualifiers slated for March 23-31 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. — VNS
