5. Samuel Lalmuanpuia to ATKMB:
ATK Mohun Bagan has been lately known for having big signing in their club including the move in of Tiri and Jhingan this season along with players like Roy Krishna, Komal Thatal, Pritam Kotal, Subhasish Bose or even Manvir Singh. Samuel Lalmuanpuia had made a move from Kerala Blasters to Odisha FC this season in search of game time but only to end up majorly on the Odisha bench.
Once discussed about, of being one of India’s best midfielders, Samuel Lalmuanpuia, commonly known as Samuela had to take decisions soon and of all clubs it was ATK Mohun Bagan whose eyes were on the magical Mizo youngster. Samuela has a vast experience at this young age and if given an opportunity might turn out to be a match winner and a crucial player for the team, specially with the International Tournaments coming up for the team.
6. SeiminLen Doungel to Jamshedpur FC:
Jamshedpur FC under Owen Coyle has been bright yet inconsistent in bringing results and were one of the teams who were probably looking to make things work. Hence expected yet unexpectedly the signing of SeiminLen Doungel from FC Goa. The Indian International was not getting ample game time at FC Goa, and at the same time Jamshedpur wanted someone of his calibre playing on pitch more often, which led to the transfer.
Len is already starting matches for Jamshedpur FC and is looking bright and sharp on the right hand side of the pitch. It might just be in time, with a ray of hope, that Jamshedpur can pick up few crucial points soon and climb up the league table o make it to the play-offs.
7. Rakesh Pradhan to Odisha FC:
Odisha FC have almost 0 chances of making it through to the top 4, but all they can do in a horrible season so far, is to end it on a high and earn a respectable position on the table for the team.
On the other hand, Rakesh Pradhan had been performing ever so well for North East United last season, but has been lacking game time in this season so far. The management decided the best for the youngster and loaned him out to play for Odisha FC, for the rest of the season.
8. Sarthak Golui, Sourav Das, Ankit Mukherjee, Raju Gaikwad and Ajay Chhetri to SC East Bengal:
East Bengal are one of the teams who were probably the most keen for the transfer window to open, in order to make alterations and transfers to help their team shape up in a better way. Wins were not coming their way, fans and the coach himself was disappointed by the squad and a revamp was what we all expected and it turned out to be true.
East Bengal were almost taking in players like the start of the season. Ankit Mukherjee and Raju Gaikwad were brought in early in January to strengthen their defence, which to be honest, has already made an impact to the team’s performance, in a good way. Ajay Chhetri was the man to join SC East Bengal next, and is already starting games for the team in the center of the park. Ajay, known for his passing and controlling qualities, has been brought on a loan deal from rivals, Bengaluru FC.
The other two deals were the most recent to come in, at the ending days of the transfer window, one of whom is a promising youngster in midfield, Sourav Das and the other is one of the standout Indian Center backs of the previous season, Sarthak Golui. Both Bengali lads, make their move to their hometown club, from Mumbai City FC and are waiting to showcase their talent in the remaining games of the season.
