The 23-year-old scored four goals in 11 appearances for the Gaurs in the last ISL season.

Jamshedpur FC have signed Ishan Pandita on a transfer from FC Goa. The club secured the youngster’s commitment with the club on a two-year deal, which will see him don the red jersey till May 2023. 

Pandita had a decent season in the Indian Super League (ISL) last term, having scored four goals at an average of 33 minutes per goal in 11 appearances for FC Goa. His performances subsequently earned him a call-up to the Indian National Team in March 2021, ahead of  India's friendlies against Oman and UAE. On 25 March, he made his debut in a 1-1 draw match against  Oman. 

Thrilled at joining the men of steel, young Ishan Pandita said, “I’m extremely excited to be joining Jamshedpur. I  feel this is the perfect place for me right now to grow and develop with the help of Owen Coyle and the unwavering support of Jamshedpur's fantastic fans. I can't wait to get on the field and put on that red  jersey of Jamshedpur.”

The young marksman became the first Indian to sign a professional contract with a club in La Liga in  2016 when he joined the setup at CD Leganes. There he turned out for the club’s U-19 side, which at the time plied its trade in the Division de Honor Juvenil, the top level of the Spanish system for youth players.

Jamshedpur Head Coach, Owen Coyle was delighted to get the young striker as he said, “Ishan [Pandita] had a fantastic season and is now an Indian International player. He was wanted by several clubs, and we are delighted to welcome him to Jamshedpur and fulfill his hunger to score goals. The fans can look forward to a repeat of his heroics from last season and more, with consistent playing opportunities. His addition  emphasizes our belief in young Indian players who will have solid opportunities with us to showcase their  talent and perform.”
