CAGLIARI, Italy (AP) - Cagliari has given North Korean forward Han Kwang-Song his first professional contract.

On Thursday, the Serie A side announced Han, who is registered as a youth team player, signed a contract tying him to the club until 2022.

The 18-year-old Han became the first North Korean to play in Serie A when he came on for the final four minutes of Cagliari’s 3-1 win at Palermo on April 2.

He scored the following weekend, when he was brought on for the final nine minutes in a 3-2 defeat to Torino.
