After being linked with French second division club Clermont Foot 63 for a while, Vietnam star Nguyen Cong Phuong now looks likely to be heading to Belgium’s top flight.
The 24-year-old striker has been linked with a move to Belgian Pro League side Sint-Truidense VV who finished seventh in the league last season and are looking to make it to the play-offs in the upcoming season.
And now, the star striker’s parent club Hoang Anh Gia Lai (HAGL) FC have confirmed that a deal is close to completion and also revealed some details regarding the contract the player will be signing.

“Cong Phuong will play for Sint-Truidense under a one-year contract starting in the new season. Currently, we are helping him complete procedures for Belgium. Sint-Truidense even have a video that introduces Cong Phuong’s debut ready,” HAGL director Nguyen Tan Anh told Tien Phong.
This means that Cong Phuong will win a one-year contract at the Belgian top division club instead of a one-month trial that French second division side Clermont Foot were looking for from the Vietnam forward.
“He was a target of many teams who had noticed him. After considering all the proposals, HAGL decided to choose Sint-Truidense as the new destination for Cong Phuong,” said Tan Anh.
It has also been revealed that the contract between the two parties will be signed in a function to be held at the Ho Chi Minh City on July 5.
