Ha Noi FC agreed to end their contract with midfielder Dinh Thanh Trung after their two-hour meeting with the Viet Nam Football Federation.
Trung refused to play for the club in a match against Becamex Binh Duong in the fourth round of the V-League Eximbank 2012 on February 5. The young player expressed his hope to leave Ha Noi FC but the club refused.
His contract ended on January 21 but one clause called for Trung to sign a new contract to play for the club until October 25, 2013. However, the clause was deemed illegal.-VNS
