Nguyen Tuan Anh is not for sale, says Hoang Anh Gia Lai

Nguyen Tuan Anh is not for sale, says Hoang Anh Gia Lai

The Vietnamese side confirms that midfielder Nguyen Tuan Anh will play for Hoang Anh Gia Lai in the 2020 season.

A few days ago, rumors said midfielder Nguyen Tuan Anh is on the way to play for the Thai club Muangthong United in the 2020 season on loan from Hoang Anh Gia Lai.

Before that, a source close to the Thai side told Live Sports Asia that they are close to signing a Vietnamese play-maker to replace Sarach Yooyen, who will likely move to the J1 League club Kawasaki Frontale.

Compared to other Vietnamese midfielders, Nguyen Tuan Anh has the advantage to play football abroad, so he may consider joining Muangthong United.

However, Hoang Anh Gia Lai officials say that they have to intend to let Nguyen Tuan Anh go. Instead of that, he will continue playing for Hoang Anh Gia Lai in the 2020 season.

Moreover, in December, they also declined an offer from La Liga side Deportivo Alaves. In the past, Nguyen Tuan Anh used to play for the Japanese side Yokohama FC on loan from Hoang Anh Gia Lai in the 2016 season.

Nevertheless, he rarely had a chance to play for the first team because of his frequent injuries. Called Vietnamese Ronaldinho, Nguyen Tuan Anh is one of the most skillful players of Golden Stars thanks to his abilities in dribbling as well as controlling the ball.
