The American-Vietnamese player has finally found a new club.
Lee Nguyen decided to sign a 18-month contract with an undisclosed fee for V-League 2009 runner-up Becamex Binh Duong yesterday. His monthly salary will stand at US$ 10,000, making him the best-paid player in V-League alongside Hai Phong's Leandro. Since the register window was closed, Lee will make his debut for Binh Duong in the second phase of V-League which will start in June.
Binh Duong's decision to approach Lee Nguyen was considered a reasonable one as the club is currently suffering lack of depth and creativity in the midfield. Moreover, Binh Duong needs new addition to its squad to gear up to challenges in V-League, AFC Cup and National Cup.
Before joining Binh Duong, USA international Lee Nguyen had played for Dutch club PSV Eindhoven, Rander FC from Denmark and V-League side HAGL.
