HÀ NỘI — HCM City has signed striker Dominique Da Sylva to prepare for the second leg of the V.League 1.
The contract will last until the end of the year.
The 27-year-old player is a Mauritanian footballer who plays forward for Ermis Aradippou and the Mauritanian national team. He spent time at the Académie de Football Nouakchott before joining Tunisian club CS Sfaxien in 2007. Four years later, he was transferred to Egyptian club Al-Ahly.
Silva scored three goals during the 2010–11 campaign and helped the Al-Ahly win the Egyptian Premier League for the seventh successive season. In 2012, he came on as a late substitute in Al-Ahly’s 2–1 win over ENPP in the Egyptian Super Cup. In 2014, he moved to Zamalek FC. He made an immediate impression, scoring in each of his first four games.
According to the transfermarkt.com, Sylva was assessed more than VNĐ15 billion (US$652,200) in 2001. Sylva will wear HCM City’s jersey in the match with Long An at the 14th round of the league on June 24. — VNS
