Odisha FC signing spree continues; East Bengal defender roped in

Odisha FC’s signing spree continues unabated. The Indian Super League club has announced a sixth recruitment in a week. The latest on board is India defender Kamalpreet Singh.

The club has reached an agreement with Kamalpreet for a period of two years, ahead of the seventh edition of the Hero Indian Super League (ISL).

After playing a crucial role in Minerva Punjab’s first ever I-League title win in 2017-18 season, the 22-year-old fullback had represented Kolkata’s East Bengal for two seasons. The Punjab-born defender has also played for India in the age-group competitions.

Welcoming Kamalpreet to the club, OFC President Mr. Rohan Sharma said, “Kamalpreet will be a solid addition to the team. After last season, it was clear that we needed depth in the defense. Kamalpreet is a player who we see to be a no-nonsense defensive right back. He will compete with Shubham for the right back spot which is good for the club.”

Kamalpreet expressed, “Really excited to be part of the project at Odisha FC and hopefully will win some silverware with them too. I have seen and heard that the club gives a lot of chances to the youngsters, and I am ready to fight for my place in the starting line-up for every game.”

Odisha FC are gearing up for a new combine for a new ISL season. Not just there will be new faces on the field, the Bhubaneswar-based club will also have a new Chief Executive in the office as Ashish Shah’s contract has not been renewed on completion of the three-year term.
