Oboya poised for January switch



Kenya winger Patrick Oboya will be loaned out by his Slovakia top-tier club MFK Ruzomberok to Vietnamese side FC Binh Dinh in January.

The Slovakian league is on a three-month winter break, with MFK Ruzomberok chief Michal Mertinyák telling corgonliga.sk that the club will consequently farm out a number of their players.

“We have already begun the winter training. However, some of our talented young footballers who need regular playing time, will be hosted elsewhere with some starting in Dunaszerdahely. Patrick Oboya is heading to Vietnam,” Mertinyák said.

Oboya said he was happy with the deal and expressed optimism that he would impress at the new team.

“My club and FC Binh have agreed that I move to Vietnam in January in a six-month loan deal,” Oboya said.

“This is a good move to me since I will find play time and therefore improve my game within the six months before returning to Slovakia. The club (FC Binh Dinh) has agreed to pay my salary and also a signing fee. It’s a good deal and I hope to work hard and leave an impression,” he added.

The club competes in the second tier of Vietnamese football, which is also known as the Vietnamese First Division.

Oboya joined MFK Ruzomberok earlier this year after spending four years at Czech Republic side FC Siad Most. However, he has had little playing time due to a knee injury he sustained early in the year but is now fully fit and hopes to regain his earlier form.
