The 27-year-old has previously also plied his trade for English lower division sides Wycombe Wanderers, Oldham Athletic and Shrewsbury Town among others.
Brisbane Roar forward Aaron Amadi-Holloway has penned a one-year deal with Kolkata giants East Bengal, Khel Now can confirm.
The 27-year-old striker played 23 matches last season, but was able to find the net only once. Amadi-Holloway spent the major part of his career playing in the lower tiers of Europe, before making the move to Brisbane Roar last campaign. Though, he made few starts for the club, he was consistent whenever given a chance. Moreover, Amadi-Holloway can also play as a centre-back and has proved his dual trades while playing for Wycombe Wanderers and Shrewsbury Town.
It seems new head coach Robbie Fowler trusts the striker, as Aaron is expected to lead the line for the Red and Gold. Incidentally, Aaron Amadi-Holloway is the second player from Brisbane Roar to make the move to East Bengal after Scott Neville joined the team in a loan move earlier. The former Wales U-17 and U-19 international has already bagged his Indian visa and is expected to reach Goa by the coming weekend.
East Bengal are the new entrants in the upcoming season of ISL and will be the 11th team in the developing league. With a coach of Fowler’s stature in, the club are hopeful of a positive debut campaign. While they have already begun announcing new signings, it will be interesting to see how the squad shapes up before the beginning of the term. Moreover, the new coaching staff will carry a huge weight of expectations from the club’s jubilant fans.
