Sreenidhi Deccan FC have completed the signing of versatile defender Sriram Bhoopati from Chennai City FC on a free transfer, IFTWC can confirm.
The I-League debutants have made a strong side after roping in some talented youngsters from other I-League clubs. They have already announced the appointment of former Gokulam Kerala and Churchill Brothers head coach Santiago Varela.
The 27-year-old defender from Tamil Nadu has been one of the standout performers for the former I-League champions. He has spent three seasons at Chennai City FC and has clinched the I-League with his local team.
Sriram has played in various positions for Chennai City FC. He has played on both flanks and as a defensive midfielder. His versatility and experience in a continental competition like AFC Cup can be vital for Sreenidhi Deccan FC.
Sriram had attracted interest from ISL clubs, but he chose to stay in the I-League and prove his mettle again. After signing the likes of Lalromawia, Shibil, Ubaid CK, Mayakannan and many other Indian players, Sreenidhi Deccan FC is looking very strong and will pose a threat to the title-winning ambitions of other clubs.
