Born in Hải Dương Province in Vietnam's Northern Red River Delta, Lê Văn Sơn joins City on loan from Hoàng Anh Gia Lai (HAGL) for the 2020 V-League 1 Season.  The 23 year old right back made over 70 appearances for the Pleiku based side, making his debut on 4th January 2015 in the 4-2 home victory over Sanna Khánh Hòa BVN.  The game involved a number of familiar faces to City fans as Văn Sơn played along side City new boys Lê Đức Lương (12) and Nguyễn Công Phượng (21) who was to be replaced in the 66th minute by recently departed Võ Út Cường after scoring twice and another recent departee Lê Hoàng Thiên who wore the number 19 shirt last season for City.

Văn Sơn's last game for HAGL, before his move south, ironically came against City at the SVĐ Thống Nhất on 19th October 2019 in a game which the visitors were to win 1-2.
