Bengaluru FC rope in goalie Amrinder

Bengaluru FC have blostered their squad with the signing of goalkeeper Amrinder Singh who joins the Blues from Pune FC on a loan deal till the end of the season.

Twenty-two-year-old Amrinder, who was impressive in his loan-stint with ISL semifinalists Atletico de Kolkata this season, becomes Bengaluru’s eighth signing of the new season after Kim Song-Yong, Alwyn George, Salam Ranjan Singh, Len Doungel and the three India under-19s in Nishu Kumar, Daniel Lalhlimpuia and Malsawmzuala.

“I am delighted at signing with Bengaluru FC till the end of the season and I don’t really think I need to say much about the kind of professionalism this club is known for. I’ve been through a session and can comfortably say I am at the best possible place in Indian football at the moment,” said Amrinder who will be giving Lalthuammawia Ralte stiff competition for a place in the first XI.

Amrinder, who hails Mahilpur town in Punjab, spent four seasons with Pune FC before his loan stint with Atletico Kolkata. Blues coach Ashley Westwood was equally pleased at getting the ’keeper.

“We're pleased and delighted to sign Amrinder. We are always looking for young and potentially good Indian players at our club and he fits that mould. He’s coming in to challenge Ralte for his No.1 spot.” said Westwood after a training session at the Bangalore Football Stadium on Friday.
