Mito Hollyhock president Kunio Numata will visit Vietnam in May in a bid to sign a loan contract extension with wonderkid Nguyen Cong Phuong, local newspapers reported.
Kunio Numata president is scheduled to arrive in Vietnam on April 24. The president will watch a V.League game between Hoang Anh Gia Lai and Song Lam Nghe An on the same day at the Pleiku Stadium. After that, he will meet with Hoang Anh Gia Lai president Doan Nguyen Duc to discuss a possible contract extension for Cong Phuong.
Cong Phuong hasn’t played a single game for Mito Hollyhock yet, however it is reported that the Japanese side wanted to extend his contract largely due to his potential as well as his professionalism at the club.
