The midfielder spent five seasons at Chennaiyin FC before making a move.
Jamshedpur FC announced the signing of midfielder Germanpreet Singh on its way to bolster its squad for the upcoming Hero Indian Super League season. The 26-year-old midfielder will don the red jersey till 2024.
Midfielder Germanpreet Singh represented Chennaiyin FC for five seasons and he featured in 62 matches, having scored once and assisted three times. He was also a part of their Hero ISL winning squad in 2017-18. Before moving to Chennaiyin in July 2017, Germanpreet played for Minerva Punjab FC.
Germanpreet said, ” I wanted to take on a new challenge after playing with Chennaiyin FC for 5 years. When Jamshedpur came calling it was an obvious choice. I play to win and Jamshedpur is a club with huge ambitions having proved so in the way it won the League Winners Shield. I am excited to be playing at the Furnace representing the vibrant Red Miners. It’s an added responsibility to defend and add more to the club’s achievements and I look forward to working hard in training and games to achieve the same.”
“Germanpreet is an exciting player who fits our playing style. He is young, skill full and has a strong physical presence which is an added asset to our midfield. He is a proven Champion in the ISL and brings that winning mentality for himself and the team,” said Aidy Boothroyd.
Germanpreet will join the squad in Jamshedpur for the pre-season in mid-August, donning jersey number 28.

The Men of Steel have roped in Aidy Boothroyd as their new head coach. A few weeks back Jitendra Singh extended his contract with the club. Another young addition came in the form of Muhammed Uvais, for whom the club spent a decent transfer fee as well. Recent signings for Jamshedpur FC however, are Harry Sawyer and Wellington Priori. Notably, Priori was previously a part of the club as well.
Even though the club has signed these aforementioned players, a few ISL Shield winning candidates have left the squad. Jordan Murray parted ways with Jamshedpur FC. Greg Stewart, on the other hand, signed for Mumbai City. Meanwhile, midfielder Mobashir Rahman has joined East Bengal.
