HA NOI (VNS) — Quang Ninh Coal's U23 national goalkeeper Nguyen Hoai Anh has been transferred to First Division's HCM City FC, following a one-year loan contract.
Anh could not find an official position in the V-League side as he is the number three goalie, behind Huynh Tuan Linh and Nguyen Van Phong.
The young player was one of three keepers who were called to the U23 team under former Head Coach Toshyia Miura to prepare for the Asian U23 Football Championship's qualification last year.
He started with the first team, playing in several friendly matches ahead of the event.
Apart from Anh, HCM City has also signed midfielder Hoang Nhat Nam from Nam Dinh and has invited Coach Lu Dinh Tuan to take charge in the coming season.
