Jitendra Singh has penned a new deal with Jamshedpur FC, IFTWC can confirm
East Bengal was among the clubs interested in acquiring the services of Jitendra as his contract was due to expire this year but Jamshedpur are now all set to extend the youngster’s contract.
After rising to fame during the U17 World Cup, the midfielder has since featured for the Indian Arrows, after which he signed with Jamshedpur FC. Jitendra Singh only started six games for The Red Miners in his first two seasons before breaking through in the 21/22 season, becoming an indispensable part of Owen Coyle’s shield-winning team. Jitendra started seventeen games for Jamshedpur and was mostly used in the double pivot deployed by Coyle.
Jitendra’s ceiling is undeniably very high with club captain Peter Hartley describing him as a player who “covers every blade of grass” and “is a pleasure to play with”.
In 2019, the 20-year-old had signed a three-year deal with Jamshedpur, leaving the Indian Arrows. The defending champions are now all set to extend his contract after the midfielder’s contribution to their title charge last season, thus putting an end to all speculations regarding his future.
Jamshedpur fans can expect an interesting transfer window, as the club will need to cover a few bases before the start of next season. With the addition of Germanpreet Singh from Chennaiyin and the extension of Jitendra’s contract, they are off to a promising start. Furthermore, the Red Miners are also on the lookout for a new coach after Owen Coyle’s exit.
