Vina Megastar Group has signed up former striker of Major League Soccer club LA Galaxy, Gavin Glinton, to shore up the fortunes of northern V-League club Nam Dinh.
Club owner Nguyen Hoang Long said that Glinton would begin practicing with the team on Monday (Mar 22).
"Glinton is worth every cent and will help strengthen the front line of the team. His first performances have met the club management's requirements," Long said
Nam Dinh, languishing at the bottom of the league with only one point after six rounds, doesn't have to "pay a cent" because Glinton's contract with the North American Soccer League club Carolina RailHawks has just ended.
Nam Dinh's sponsor Megastar, a leading corporation in Vietnam's entertainment industry, hopes the 31-year-old striker from the Turks and Caicos Islands will help the club avoid being relegated to the second-tier First Division at the end of this season.
According to an initial agreement between the two sides, Glinton, who was capped 51 times for LA Galaxy and scored six goals, will get US$10,000 per month.
