V-League's Ninh Binh has signed a contract with Patiyo Tambwe to strengthen its forward line for the coming football league.

The Congolese striker, 29, played for Thanh Hoa last season but was not made use of in the second half of the season.

In Ninh Binh, he will pair with Ivory Coast 's Moussa Sanogo, 30, making it a foreign attacking duo for the team that was placed second from the bottom in 2012-13.

Earlier, coach Nguyen Van Sy had also recruited South Korean midfielder Soi Wi-sub.

The newcomers will be part of the team that will compete at the Asian Football Confederation Cup, starting in February./.
