Sandesh Jhingan became the latest India international to move to Bengaluru FC after signing for the I-League champion here on Thursday. The 23-year-old defender arrived from Indian Super League (ISL) side Kerala Blasters on loan, and joined the likes of Lenny Rodrigues, Mandar Rao Desai and Harmanjot Khabra at the club.





"In Jhingan, we have signed a player who can turn out as a central defender and provide cover in full-back positions," said BFC head coach Albert Roca. "He is coming off the back of a very good ISL campaign and his introduction adds to a squad that will need his presence as we look to compete in both the I-League and the AFC competitions."

Jhingan started his career at United Sikkim in 2011 and then moved to Mumbai FC. Last season, he turned out for DSK Shivajians in the I-League. "It feels great to be here. Bengaluru FC are the champions and one of the best clubs in India right now, so it's an honour to have been approached by them. I had no doubts in my mind and when the offer came about I just said yes," he said.
