Doan Van Hau is going to join Austria Wien FC for the 2019-20 season on loan.

Austria Wien will pay about 100,000 euros (113,000 USD) for Hau during the 2019-2020 season. Wien said they were prepared to pay 774,000 USD to buy Hau outright, but Hanoi FC said they would be holding out for 1 million USD.

Austria Wien are one of the best teams in their domestic league with 24 national titles, 27 national cups and six super cups, and have competed in continental tournaments including the Champions League. They are currently No 4 in the Austrian Football Bundesliga. The team, according to transfermarkt, are worth 22.5 million euros.

Despite his age, Hau is a key player for both his club and country. He recently won silver at the King’s Cup in Thailand with the national team. In the last two years, he was part of the team that finished runners-up at the Asian U23 Championship and won the AFF Cup, Asian Cup top eight, Asian Games top four, national V.League trophy and award for the best young footballer of 2018.

Hau has also attracted attention from Muangthong United of Thailand and Monchengladbach of Germany. If a full-time deal is struck, it would make him the most valuable player in Vietnamese history.

The current record belongs to goalkeeper Dang Van Lam who moved to Muangthong United for 500,000 USD.

Hau will also be the third player to head to Europe after striker Le Cong Vinh who moved to Leixoes in Portugal in 2005 and Nguyen Cong Phuong who will join Clermont Foot 63 next week.
