Transfer Market: Surprise! Star Indian goalkeeper Dheeraj Singh completes his signing for an ISL franchise


Kolkata:
India’s one of the biggest prospects of the FIFA U17 World Cup, Dheeraj Singh at last signs for Indian Super League side Kerala Blasters FC. Dheeraj went to Scottish Premier League club Motherwell FC and created huge buzz in the transfewr market. No doubt, the inclusion of Dheeraj is a massive transfer for the South Indian franchise.

Thangboi Singto, the Assistant Coach of KBFC, told www.xtratime.in , “Dheeraj is a great talent, but it won’t be an easy task to get a chance in the first XI. Same with the senior national team as well. We have Gurpreet already, who will play for the next five years if not more. There are some other outstanding goalkeepers as wellb like Amrinder, Vishal Kaith and Sanjivan. So Dheeraj has to go a long way. The transition from the junior stage to senior stage is very tough.”

On the flip side, Dheeraj’s coach in Indian Arrows, Floyd Pinto said, “He is an outstanding talent. He he left arrows to try his luck in Scotland, I told him a very simple thing. …if you get a chance to play there, you will create history, if not, you still have the same quality to take Indian football to the next level. Even if he gets the chance to be the 2nd or 3rd goalkeeper in KBFC at the start, I’m sure he will end up being the no.1 choice.”
