After impressive performances in the 19th AVC Senior Women’s Championship and the 2017 SEA Games, Alyssa Valdez is being recruited by Thailand and Taiwan volleyball teams – 3BB Nakornnont and volleyball club team in Taiwan. Alyssa confirmed she received the offers.

3BB Nakornnont is competing in the Women’s Volleyball Thailand League from October 2017 to March 2018, according to Business Mirror, and is already pressing Alyssa Valdez with its offer. It was the same Thai team that Valdez joined several months ago. However, Valdez is still undecided on her next move. She may take one of the overseas offers.

According to local volleyball’s ‘phenom’, she and her managers are still talking to the two teams but nothing is final yet. If she takes the Thailand offer, Alyssa assures her Pinoy fans that she would still be playing the in the Philippine Volleyball League next season as its schedule won’t be in conflict with the Thailand league. The PVL usually opens its season in March and the Thai league would be over by that time.
