ISL – Jamshedpur FC in Advanced Talks to Sign Jordan Murray from Kerala Blasters

-

The Indian transfer window is starting to heat up as more and more deals are reaching their climax. Although the pandemic has been a massive headache for the Indian Super League clubs, they have kicked off their preparations for the league’s upcoming edition. One of the first to draw blood, Jamshedpur FC, have kept tabs on Kerala Blasters forward Jordan Murray and are in advanced negotiations with the Australian, IFTWC can confirm.

The former Central Coast Mariners striker moved to India last season and was sensational upfront for Kerala Blasters. Exceeding all expectations, Murray became the top scorer for his club with seven goals outscoring marquee marksmen Gary Hooper.

A remarkable two-year spell with NPL side APIA Leichhardt catapulted Murray into the limelight as he finished with a staggering tally of 43 goals in 64 games. In this great spell, he also won the golden boot award in 2018, which made him a hot prospect in the Australian market. In the following season, Murray made his switch into Australia’s top flight with Central Coast Mariners.

After spending two years in Gosford, Murray made his first overseas move with the Kerala Blasters. The 25-year-old showcased his talent in India’s top flight and quickly became a fan favourite among Kerala fans. Murray was among the few bright sparks in a disappointing campaign for the blasters as they finished just 5 points above bottom-placed Odisha FC.

Murray’s departure might be a hard pill to swallow for the Blasters Faithful as they once again might miss out on one of their top performers. Cashing in this opportunity is the side from Jamshedpur, who have already started to build their side for next season. After finishing 6th in the Indian Super League ladder last season, Jamshedpur FC will be determined to improve their squad and fight for the top four next season.

  1. I really don’t understand… Kerala Blasters, just gifts away it’s good players to other teams, it just can’t hold to its good players and go around looking for players who don’t perform at all….Last year they lost Ogbeche, this year Murray…Buck up Blasters do something to retain your good players and stop changing Coaches every year (give the coach some time to settle)….
    Retain your performers and stop recruiting non perfomers and
    left-overs at the last moment…So wake up and start planning before others clubs wake up.
