Sandesh Jhingan signed a five-year contract with ATK-Mohun Bagan on Saturday. The star footballer took to Twitter to make the announcement.
Jhingan played for Kerala Blasters from 2014, the inaugural year of the Indian Super League. In May, he mutually terminated his contract.
The Kolkata based club has already roped in Tiri from Jamdshedpur FC and Subhasish Bose from Mumbai City FC. The 27-year-old is believed to be the highest-valued footballer in India but the club did not reveal the signing amount.
“I am delighted to have joined ATKMB. I had a detailed chat with the coach and the owners and I admire their vision and I am very happy that they felt that I could be a part of the family,” Jhingan said in a press release, issued by the club.
Head coach Habas was excited to get Jhingan in the side. “Sandesh brings a new energy into the team. He is an adept player and adds immense value to our overall strategy,” Habas said.
