The youngster scored three goals and provided two assists in the I-League last season.

Continuing to build on an already impressive core of Indian youngsters at the club, Hyderabad FC have completed the signing of the highly rated 21-year-old attacker Ramhlunchhunga, on a long-term deal the club announced on Wednesday.

The Mizo-born versatile attacker who signs from Aizawl FC, made a name for himself with Electric Veng FC in his hometown. He started with the UDream academy and trained alongside Hyderabad FC star Akash Mishra, as he kicked off his professional career at an early age.

Ramhlunchhunga was also a part of the Mizoram Santosh Trophy team in the 2018-19 and 2019-20 seasons while also helping EVFC finish runners-up in the Mizoram Premier League registering five goals in 17 games.

He featured in the I-League with Aizawl FC in 2020 and slowly cemented his place in the first team last season.

Ramhlunchhunga registered three goals and two assists in 16 I-League appearances last season, also bagging two ‘Man of the Match’ awards and was a standout player for Aizawl.

Hyderabad FC’s preparations for ISL 2022/23

The Nizams have been successful in retaining most of their side. They have extended the contracts of foreigners – Bartholomew Ogbeche and Joel Chianese. Even Indians like Sahil Tavora and Laxmikant Kattimani will be adding to the squad in the upcoming season. Meanwhile, as a new addition, defender Odei Onaindia has re-joined the club after a season. Also, young lads Alex Saji and Manoj Mohammad have registered themselves as a Nizam.

The club however, faced a major setback in the departure of Asish Rai to ATK Mohun Bagan. Although, the recruiters have added Soyal Joshy to fill Rai’s place, it is perhaps too much to expect from an ISL debutant. Also, Souvik Chakrabarti was under the radar of East Bengal. However, that move is yet to take any prominent shape.
