Indian Super League outfit Jamshedpur FC concluded a busy winter transfer window with the acquisition of full-back  Boris Singh Thangjam. The young defender, who featured for the Indian National U17 Team  that played in the FIFA U17 World Cup in 2017, has been signed by the club for two-and-a-half years until 2023.  

Jamshedpur FC Head Coach, Owen Coyle was delighted to bring Boris on board. He said, “Boris  is a fantastic signing for our club. He is young, with a potential to improve further. He has the  ability and desire to do well and comes with a lot of ambition as he wants to show everyone how  good a player he can be for Jamshedpur.”

“He brings with him some real pace, something which we  are continuing to add to our squad. There was plenty of interest from other clubs, so we are  delighted he wanted to come to join us at Jamshedpur FC,” he added. 

Boris Singh started his professional club career with Indian Arrows after his participation in the FIFA  U17 World Cup. He made his debut against Chennai City FC, also scoring in that game. In 2018,  Boris joined ATK (now ATK Mohun Bagan) where he spent two and a half seasons, one of them  on loan to Indian Arrows, before joining Jamshedpur. 

On completing his move, Boris Singh said, I am delighted to have joined Jamshedpur. The club is in  the mix to qualify for the playoffs this season and I want to help them push for the same and make  history. I come with the aim of achieving some much-deserved glory for the fans in Jamshedpur  and hope to put my best foot forward to achieve our goals and improve myself as a player too.” 

Boris also exclaimed his excitement at the chance of playing under the tutelage of Owen Coyle.  He said, “It is an honour to work and play under the guidance of a top-notch coach like Owen  Coyle and I am glad to have his faith in me.” 

Boris Singh has joined the Jamshedpur FC bio-bubble and will be wearing jersey no. 2 this season.
