Wanchai Tabwises, the captain of Thailand's national volleyball team, has become a member of the Vietnamese club Duc Long-Fifth Military Zone.
Thailand's number one striker, Wanchai, who stands 1.85 meters tall and weighs 85kg, landed in Hanoi on Sunday October 3 just in time for the second leg of Vietnam's National Volleyball Championship which will end on October 19.
The 24-year-old Wanchai made his debut with the Vietnamese club in the opener of the contest, which is being held in the northern provinces of Hai Duong and Ninh Binh.
Wanchai signed a five-year contract in December 2009 to play with Duc Long-Fifth Military Zone from January 2010 till December 2014.
However, he abstained from playing with the Central Highlands club because he was under contract with a club in Bahrain.
Duc Long-Fifth Military Zone is not a strong club and the club managers want to improve its position by signing excellent players like Wanchai.
Wanchai will earn US$7,000 per month the highest grossing salary in the league. Most foreign players' average around US$2,000-2,500 per month.
