ISL – Jitendra Singh in advanced talks with Chennaiyin FC


Chennaiyin FC, the team from the south, is currently in advanced talks with 22-year-old midfielder Jitendra Singh, IFTWC can exclusively confirm. Despite receiving interest from multiple Indian Super League clubs, the versatile player has agreed to terms with the Owen Coyle-led side.

Jitendra’s career so far

Jitendra is a product of the AIFF Elite Academy, hailing from West Bengal, and emerged in the mainstream of Indian football through the FIFA U-17 World Cup 2017 hosted in India. He featured in two out of three games in the campaign and was substituted into another match, marking his debut as a responsible and recognized footballer.

Primarily a defensive midfielder, Jitendra possesses the versatility to operate in both the center midfield and center back positions with equal efficiency and precision. He boasts a high passing accuracy rate and excellent tackling success, showcasing his defensive prowess. Additionally, he is adept at delivering precise long balls, highlighting his attacking capabilities as well.

His journey began with a professional contract with the now-defunct Indian Arrows side, where he played for two consecutive seasons, featuring in 32 games for the young side in both the I-League and Super Cup campaigns. His potential didn’t go unnoticed, as Indian Super League side Jamshedpur FC recognized his talent and brought him on board.

Under the guidance of Spanish tactician Antonio Iriondo, Jitendra made his debut in the ISL against FC Goa in 2019. Since then, he has been a consistent presence for Jamshedpur FC, with four seasons under his belt. During his tenure, he achieved the pinnacle of success by winning an Indian Super League shield in 2022 under the management of Scottish manager Owen Coyle. Throughout his time with The Red Miners, he has appeared in a total of 68 games, contributing with a goal and an assist.

Now, his return to Chennaiyin FC to reunite with Owen Coyle could mark a new chapter in his career. As a young player with a promising future ahead of him, this move presents an opportunity for Jitendra to embark on a new journey and continue his development in the footballing landscape.
