Former Indian U-17 World cup team captain Amarjit Singh Kiyam is all set to join SC East Bengal on loan from FC Goa for the upcoming season. The 20-year-old joined FC Goa in the January transfer window last season from Jamshedpur FC.
Amarjit Singh: Career so far
Amarjit began his youth career with AIFF Elite Academy and was part of the Indian U-17 squad that played the 2017 U-17 World Cup. He played all three matches and was the captain of the team.
He then joined Indian Arrows for the 2017-18 season before snapping up by Jamshedpur FC in 2018. He stayed with Indian Arrows for one more season on loan and made 39 appearances for the team in two years, scoring six goals.
Being a defensive midfielder, Amarjit is known for his passing abilities and with-the-ball movements. He joined FC Goa in January 2021 after making 15 appearances for Jamshedpur FC in two seasons. But, his move to FC Goa didn’t provide the game time he needed. He just played two matches for the Gaurs in ISL and four in the AFC Champions League.
Amarjit to SC East Bengal and club’s preparations
The Manipur-born midfielder will join the Kolkata side on loan for the upcoming season. SC East Bengal once again started the preparations lately this season as there were some disputes regarding signing the final agreement with investors Shree Cement. Now, the problems are solved and SC East Bengal have started recruiting players for the 2021-22 ISL season.
They are in contact with several players from other ISL clubs and we will get to know more about it in the coming days.
