"I believe I contributed well and improved as a player in my first season. My ambition now is to help the club lift their third ISL trophy, and the first of my career," he added.

Hailing from Manipur, Reagan began his professional career at Royal Wahingdoh in the I-League in 2012. After three years at the Shillong club, he signed for NorthEast United FC, where he spent five years, garnering solid ISL experience.

Known for his composure in defence and bombing runs while going forward, Reagan proved to be a reliable outlet for CFC in the 2020-21 campaign.

He helped Chennaiyin keep six clean sheets in his 18 games last season, also notching one assist while coming close to scoring on multiple occasions.
