Mumbai City FC defender Davinder Singh has suffered an injury due to which he will miss the remainder of the current Indian Super League season.

The 23-year old suffered injury to his anterior cruciate ligament and will undergo surgery on his knee later this month. He will continue his rehabilitation with the club, a media statement issued by Mumbai City said on Thursday.

The young defender signed for The Islanders last season and was handed his debut in an away fixture against Kerala Blasters.

He went on to make a total of eight league appearances in the 2017-18 season and showed incredible promise, following which he signed a two-year extension to his contract with the club.

The Islanders, meanwhile, have brought in 27-year old defender Joyner Lourenco who joins Mumbai City until the end of the season.

The Goan full back will replace Davinder in Mumbai City’s squad for the 2018-19 season of the ISL.
