Indian Super League (ISL) outfit NorthEast United has agreed to sign Brazilian attacking midfielder Manoel Morais Amorim and Mohun Bagan's Japanese midfielder Katsumi Yusa for the 2016 season.

The signing of these two players follow the arrival of another Brazilian Mailson Alves who made the switch from Chennaiyin FC having been a part of the title-winning side.

The 31-year-old Amorim, who plied his trade with CBR Vasco da Gama in the Brazilian Serie A during the latter part of the last decade, has also turned out for famous clubs such as Corinthians and Atletico Mineiro in Brazil. While playing for Corinthians, Amorim also helped it to regain promotion to the top division from Campeonato Brasileiro Serie 'B' in 2008.

Katsumi Yusa has been with Mohun Bagan since 2013 and was instrumental in helping it win the I-League title last season. His team fell just short this time round but did clinch the Federation Cup.
