HÀ NỘI — FLC Thanh Hóa have strengthened their defences with two new contracts for the next season just a few days after the V. League 2016 ended.
Thanh Hóa shopped a lot prior to this year’s tournament but failed to enter the top three as planned. They grabbed 42 points after 26 matches and were ranked sixth.
Following news of the club, Thanh Hóa lured striker Uche Iheruome from Sanna Khánh Hòa to improve their front line.
The Nigerian player is one of the three best scorers of the V. League with 14 goals.
National midfielder Đinh Tiến Thành has joined Thanh Hóa from Cần Thơ. Under the three-year deal Thành is expected to strengthen the defence, after they let through 42 goals last season.
The club is seeking a coach who can lift it to the top position in 2017. — VNS
