HÀ NỘI — Following a successful AFC Asian Cup 2019, midfielder Lương Xuân Trường of Hoàng Anh Gia Lai (HAGL) has joined Buriram United Football Club of Thailand.
The transfer fee and Trường’s salary has not been revealed after the player signed a one year contract with Burirum.
HAGL announced the 23-year-old passed a medical and is ready to play for the Thai club.
Buriram United were Thai champions last season finishing 16 points ahead of runners-up Bangkok United. They will play in the AFC Champions League group stages this season against China’s Beijing Guoan, Japan’s Urawa Red Diamonds and South Korea’s Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors.
Buriram are considered the most successful teams in Thailand. During the past 10 years, they were crowned champions seven times and often reached the knock-out rounds of the AFC Champions League.
Meanwhile, striker Nguyễn Công Phượng of HAGL is reportedly close to signing a one-year loan deal with K League club Incheon United with the official announcement set to take place soon.
“We have received a lot of invitations from clubs of Thailand, Japan and Europe with HAGL players. HAGL believe Trường and Phượng will prove their abilities, skill and spirit and experience,” said HAGL manager Nguyễn Tấn Anh.
Phượng has scored eight goals in 31 international appearances for Việt Nam including at the AFF Suzuki Cup 2018 campaign in which Việt Nam won as well as the AFC Asian Cup where they reached the quarter-finals.
Trường played for Incheon United of South Korea for two years and Phượng went out on loan to Japanese second division side Mito HollyHock in 2016. — VNS
