Indian origin winger Omid Singh is likely to play out of India after failing to get a club in the Indian Super League.
Omid Singh has been a hot potato in Indian Football since last one year. He has expressed his desire to play for the Indian national team and decided to come to India for playing in the Indian Super League. The 27 years old winger has played for Persian Gulf League clubs in the past.
Omid agreed to join East Bengal few months back but East Bengal’s chances of playing in the ISL are fading away which means Omid won’t be coming to East Bengal. Omid’s CV is with almost all ISL clubs but his high wage demands are making it difficult for the ISL clubs. His wages aren’t the only reason as it is difficult for the clubs to include a new foreigner at this point of time because most of the ISL clubs have already identified their targets and negotiated terms with the players. Jamshedpur FC were interested in signing Omid but they didn’t even come close to the wage demands of Omid so he rejected the offer.
Omid had offers from clubs from Azerbaijan, Belarus and few other countries from Europe. A move back to Iran is also on the cards. It will be interesting to see which club will snap his signature in the next few weeks. With this, chances of seeing Omid Singh in the Indian national team colours are now doomed.
