Winger Prasanth Karuthadathkuni has signed a two-year extension with Kerala Blasters, the Indian Super League (ISL) club announced on Saturday.

KBFC signed the right-footed midfielder in 2016 before loaning him to Chennai City FC to gain first team experience. Last season, the 23-year-old caught the eye with some spirited performances along the wing in 12 matches for KBFC and managed an assist, which lead to a 12-month deal in September last year.
