Dheeraj singh future at blasters uncertan as real Kashmir’s rising goalkeeper Bilal Khan is all set to shift from the I-League to Indian Super League (ISL) and join Kerala Blasters in the coming days,
With first-choice goalkeeper Dheeraj Singhrumoured to leave Blasters for East Bengal. Blasters had to consider their options for a man between the two posts. While Lovepreet was brought in as the back-up goalkeeper, Blasters were looking at either Khan or Vishal Kaith of FC Pune City as their No 1.
However, it appears that the Blasters have completed advanced talks with Bilal Khan, who was previously with Kaith at Pune City before being loaned out to Kashmir.
Khan, 24, was phenomenal for Real Kashmir this season. He was consistent as a custodian throughout and kept 9 clean sheets for his team.
Meanwhile, Dheeraj, India’s goalkeeper during the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup, may soon switch loyalties to East Bengal, it is learnt. Dheeraj will be able to contribute tremendously to whichever club he eventually ends up in.

At East Bengal, first-choice Rakshit Dagar returned mixed results and wasn’t as impressive as he was at Minerva Punjab in the title-winning 2017-18 season. On the other hand, Karanjit Singh’s abilities between the posts have come into question time and again for Chennaiyin FC with some of his blunders costing them goals and points.

Given that the Blasters are rounding up a lot of goalkeepers before the season begins, it’s quite certain that Dheeraj is on his way out, looking for greener pastures.
