Vietnamese young midfielder Nguyen Tuan Anh is set to join J.League 2 side Yokohama FC on a season-long loan deal.
Transfer talks about the 20-year-old creative playmaker are ongoing but a deal is close according to Hoang Anh Gia Lai’s team manager Nguyen Tan Anh.
“Nguyen Tuan Anh will play for Yokohama FC on a one-season loan deal. We could not reveal the details yet, but I can confirm that we are in negotiations before announcing the deal,” said Tan Anh was quoted by Bongdaplus.
The former Vietnam U-19 player was promoted to HAGL first team in the beginning of 2015 V-League and made 24 appearances during the season campaign.
This move will also see Tuan Anh to follow his fellow countryman Nguyen Cong Phuong, who will also set to join Japanese team Mito HollyHock on loan basis.
