Many teams are anxious to do business early and get their new players accustomed to their surroundings before the season starts in February.

HCM City FC on Tuesday announced their new signing, Hoang Vu Samson, who is expected to help to lift the team in the coming V.League 1 season.

In a post on the club's Facebook page, HCM City welcomed the Nigerian-born striker who will compete at the Thong Nhat Stadium for the next two years after he left Thanh Hoa on September 30.

Samson was out of favour at Thanh Hoa as the club said he played negative football, even claiming he deliberately tried to get himself booked so he would miss matches. He was banned for three games and fined VND15 million for his stamp on goalkeeper Nguyen Tuan Manh of SHB Da Nang on March 29 and was then dropped to play with the junior team.

Samson is the all time top scorer of the V.League 1. He has netted 195 goals in 296 matches during spells with Quang Ninh, Dong Thap, Hanoi FC, Quang Nam and Thanh Hoa in domestic tournaments in 14 years.

The 33-year-old has won three V.League 1 trophies and one Super Cup for Hanoi.

Nam Dinh FC also made a move in the transfer market after they resigned their former defender Dinh Viet Tu.

Tu played for Nam Dinh when the team was in V.League 2 in 2017. Tu scored the only goal in Nam Dinh's 1-0 win over Viettel and then won a place in the V.League 1 in 2018.

Tu moved to Quang Nam in 2019 on a three-year contract and now he comes back after agreeing a two-year deal.

Nam Dinh who also extended the contract of Ivorian forward Oussou Konan for another year while their skipper Hoang Minh Tuan will leave after failing to reach an agreement to renew his deal.

In other news, Topenland Binh Dinh has signed midfielder Bui Tien Dung.

The former national U23 player ended his deal with SHB Da Nang after five years. Although the club hoped to have Dung for the 2022 season, the 22-year-old decided to look for pastures new. 

 

No details of the length of the contract have been released but it is understood he be one of the highest-paid players once he signs a new deal in December. 

Binh Dinh have been the most active in the transfer market. Since April, they have welcomed nine other players including strikers Nguyen Xuan Nam from HCM City, midfielder Nghiem Xuan Tu and striker Mac Hong Quan from Quang Ninh and forward Jermie Lynch from Hai Phong. They also let nine others return to former teams and join new clubs.

National Super Cup winner Hanoi have thanked and wished senior midfielder Le Tan Tai the best luck on their Facebook page on Tuesday.

The AFF Cup 2008 champion is not included in the team's plan for the 2022 season. The 37-year-old joined Hanoi on a one-year contract and both two sides did not want to extend their deal after it ended recently.

Tai, who played 63 matches for the national team, is on vacation at his home in Khanh Hoa Province and it was not known if he would continue as a player or not. He is taking part in an A-level course to prepare for his coaching job after retirement.

Early this month, Hanoi present their talented midfielder Nguyen Hai Long for next season.

Long moved to his new club after his former team Quang Ninh FC were had serious financial issues. 

The 21-year-old who is training with the U23 team for the Asian championship qualifier in the UAE will play for Hanoi for five years until 2026.

"Hanoi FC is the strongest team in Vietnam and is home to national stars. I have thought a lot if I could find a place in their galaxy of stars. And I decided to take my chance. I will try my best and show all of my abilities to the coaching board," said Long.

"I am happy and proud when my profession and skills are appreciated by scouts and supporters. I will work hard to get goals and wins as gifts to the Hanoi fans."
