The youngster has previously plied his trade with Spanish third division side CD Olimpic de Xativa.
Jamshedpur FC are set to bring in Sudeva FC youngster Bhupender Singh on a two-year deal with an option to extend by another two years, a source has informed Khel Now.
“Bhupender has plied his trade with Spanish third division side CD Olimpic de Xativa and trained with their first-team. He also featured for their U-19 team in a league match against Villarreal U-19s in the Liga Nacional (2nd Division) in Spain,” the source revealed.
“Identifying his talent, Jamshedpur FC have decided to sign the youngster who naturally comes with valuable experience from Spain,” he added.
Uttarakhand-based Bhupender Singh began his journey at a young age. Looking at his athleticism, Sudeva FC — who also own Spanish third tier outfit CD Olimpic de Xativa, scouted him to their youth team. Thereafter, he was also picked for the final round of selections for India’s FIFA U-17 World Cup camp. However, the attacker missed out on the final squad for the tournament.
A few years later, Bhupender Singh was selected along with 19 other players to participate in a training stint in Spain in 2019. The contingent was reportedly hand-picked by ex-Real Madrid player and scout Oscar Rubio.
Meanwhile, at Jamshedpur FC, the arrival of new head coach Owen Coyle has been followed by a horde of new players being signed. In recent weeks, the club have acquired the services of several big stars including Nerijus Valskis, Alex Monteiro de Lima and Jackichand Singh among others. Under Coyle, Bhupender Singh can expect to earn a valuable experience at Jamshedpur FC and can build a name for himself in Indian football.
