Seoul Eland FC says goodbye to Vietnam’s Van Thoan (27).
Seoul Eland announced on Thursday that Vietnamese national team striker Van Thoan has agreed to transfer to Vietnam’s Nam Dinh FC and has completed his stay with the club.
After making his professional debut in 2015, Bantoan spent eight years as a one-club man at Jalai FC in Hoang An, Vietnam. He then moved between the U-23 and A national teams under the leadership of Park Hang-seo, winning the 2018 Suzuki Cup and 2019 King’s Cup.
This led to Bantuan joining Seoul Eland this season. In the nine games he has played, Bantoan has been a consistent performer, with a high volume of activity, aggressive pressing, and dribbling that utilizes his speed.
Since his arrival, Mokdong Stadium has seen an increase in visits from Vietnamese fans living in Korea, and the team even organized a “Vietnam Day” for the 13th round match against Cheonan. Vietnamese Ambassador to Korea Nguyen Vu Fat and about 1,000 Vietnamese fans visited the stadium to cheer on Seoul Eland and Bantuan.
Vannh Thoan was called up to the A-match on the 11th of this month, where he scored an assist against Palestine, making him the first Vietnamese player to play for an overseas team. Interest in Bantuan has increased significantly since his move to Seoul Eland, and several Vietnamese clubs have expressed interest in signing him ahead of the start of the V-League in October.
In response, the club negotiated a deal with Nam Dinh FC, who had consistently expressed interest in the player, and was able to finalize a deal that would give the player the best of luck for the future while also recognizing his value to the club. 바카라사이트
