JSW Sports have signed national striker Robin Singh, the Bangalore-based I-League club announced on Thursday.

Twenty three-year-old Singh, who made his debut for the national team at the Nehru Cup last year, signed a two-year contract with the club that makes its League debut this coming season.

A product of the Tata Football Academy (TFA), Singh spent three seasons at Kolkata club East Bengal before signing on the dotted line for the Bangalore team.

The young striker has had a promising run since graduating from TFA and is often recognised as a player with bags of potential.

Singh said he was excited to be part of the Bangalore-based club and looked forward to joining a young team.

“There was more than one reason to sign for this club. It’s going to be a young squad and the way they are going about setting up the club is very professional. That apart, I have been to Bangalore to attend camps and I enjoy the vibe of the city. I’m really excited to be part of this team,” Singh said.

He has also been named among the 30 probables by national coach Wim Kovermans for the upcoming friendly against Tajikistan.
