The players have signed their respective deals till the end of the season.
ATK Mohun Bagan and FC Goa have completed a swap deal for Lenny Rodrigues and Glan Martins which will last until the end of the ongoing Indian Super League season, Khel Now can confirm.
“Lenny Rodrigues has joined ATK Mohun Bagan till the end of the season in a swap deal which will see Glan Martins return to his home state to play for FC Goa,” a source close to the developments informed. “The move was completed just in time before the January transfer deadline on 31st January.”
Rodrigues featured 10 times for the Gaurs this season, accumulating a total of 739 minutes on the pitch. In fact, he was quite influential in the midfield for the Gaurs as he recorded a brilliant 84.03% passing accuracy. The 33-year-old was rock solid in the middle of the pitch and worked perfectly between the team’s transition from defence to attack and vice versa.
On the other hand, Glan Martins had a mixed time so far at the Kolkata club. Used more often from the bench, the Goan local appeared seven times for the Mariners this season. In the 224 minutes he clocked on the pitch, the 26-year-old delivered 87 passes with a considerable 72.41% accuracy. Moreover, he also performed 17 tackles, four interceptions and seven clearances overall.
FC Goa were quite active in the January transfer window that ended on 31st. They roped in the likes of Dheeraj Singh Moirangthem as well as Adil Khan. Meanwhile, ATK Mohun Bagan too completed another swap deal involving midfielders Bradden Inman and Marcelinho. Interestingly, the Brazilian star got onto the scoresheet in his debut game for the Mariners during their win over Kerala Blasters on the weekend.
Now, it remains to be seen how the moves turn out to be for both, Lenny Rodrigues and Glan Martins as they look forward to shine for the respective new sides.
