The 22-year-old played just 188 minutes of football for the Red & Golds in the ISL.

East Bengal winger Aniket Jadhav has signed for Odisha FC, Khel Now can confirm. A source close to the development informed Khel Now, “Aniket Jadhav has signed a two-year contract at Odisha FC. He will join in the January window itself. The club has paid an undisclosed transfer fee to East Bengal.”

East Bengal signed Aniket Jadhav in the summer window (2022), as earlier revealed by Khel Now (along with contractual details). As it is, Odisha already have the likes of Jerry Mawihmingthanga and Nandhakumar Sekar, both of whom have been in scintillating form this season. With Jadhav’s addition, the Juggernauts will become more stronger, Khel Now understands.

During his stay at East Bengal, it once happened that Aniket Jadhav was dropped to the reserve team. Even his playing position was changed from that of a preferable left winger to a right winger. Thus, this change might come in as a blessing in disguise for Jadhav, who had mostly traded as a substitute at the Red & Golds.

About the Player

A member of the Indian squad in the FIFA U-17 World Cup in 2017, Aniket Jadhav is a bright and talented winger. He has been part of the Indian Arrows, Jamshedpur FC and Hyderabad FC in his career. In 2022, he signed for East Bengal after the club were undergoing a complete revamp under new investors.

Currently, he wasn’t receiving enough game-time under Stephen Constantine. However, how much of the same he’ll receive at Odisha is also a question of immense importance.

Odisha FC’s season so far

The Juggernauts are having their best season perhaps, ever since their inception. Compared to the last two seasons, Odisha are in a better place and have delivered well under head coach Josep Gombau. They are currently in the fifth position of the ISL 2022-23 points table and have collected 22 points in 14 games. A table-top finish looks bleak with the way Mumbai City are trading. But nonetheless, the Juggernauts will go all guns blazing to perform their bit.

Khel Now had previously revealed about Odisha FC acquiring the services of Tankadhar Bag. With the addition of a right back and a prolific winger, the Juggernauts have made their intentions clear to the fellow ISL sides.
