The 27-year-old has been a key figure for the Gaurs.
FC Goa winger Jackichand Singh is set to sign for Indian Super League rivals Jamshedpur FC, in a deal which will keep him with the Men of Steel until the end of the 2022-2023 season. It is understood that Jackichand is the latest Indian player who will reportedly earn more than ₹1 crore every season as part of the deal. The total value of the deal is set to be ₹3.5 crores approx, including add-ons and bonuses.
The midfielder has been in tremendous form for FC Goa this season, scoring five goals and assisting three more. The 27-year old has predominantly operated from the right of the Gaurs’ attack.
Jackichand made his debut in the league for FC Pune City in 2016 and then went on to play for the likes of Mumbai City and Kerala Blasters as well. He has a total of 13 goals and 10 assists in the league.
The news of his departure will create a few problems for Goa and the club are reported to have already found his replacement. NorthEast United’s Redeem Tlang is a like-for-like replacement for Jackichand. Tlang can operate on either wing.
Although, his form will be a point of concern, as despite starting the season well for the Highlanders, the 25-year-old could only manage to score three goals. His form went down with the performances of NorthEast United.
