The trio of acquisitions sees the Lions strengthen across the outfield departments.
Indian Super League (ISL) side Delhi Dynamos have signed three-star performers from last season in Narayan Das, Bikramjit Singh and Daniel Lalhlimpuia. The capital-based side have already acquired the services of the trio, Khel Now understands.
The Dynamos massively underperformed in the last edition of the ISL, which saw them finish at the eighth place in the league standings. Since then, the franchise has parted ways with their head coach Miguel Angel Portugal, assistant coach Shakti Chauhan, ace striker Kalu Uche and defender Pratik Chaudhary.
The trio joins the Dynamos from FC Goa, Chennaiyin FC and Bengaluru FC respectively. Das, who is the first choice left back in the Indian national team will bring his vast experience, gathered over a number of successful years in Indian football, to the table. The former Gaurs' fullback was an integral part of Sergio Lobera's side last season as they marched to the playoffs. He produced a string of impressive performances, registering 34 tackles, 37 clearances and 28 interceptions amongst others. The defender swapped destinations with Sena Ralte who has joined the Goans.
Bikramjit Singh, a former Mohun Bagan and part of Chennaiyin FC's title-winning squad of this season will be a positive signing for the Dynamos. In his time with the Marina Machans, Singh was an important part of John Gregory's plans which saw him make 15 appearances for the southerners. The 25-year-old midfielder registered a 72% passing accuracy as well as 37 tackles and 15 interceptions throughout the season.
Meanwhile, the Lions' third and final addition to the squad, Lalhlimpuia was not used in the League much, but was used in the reserve side and AFC Cup extensively by the Blues. The 20-year-old striker made only two appearances for the Blues, registering an 84% pass completion rate in the process. He made six appearances for the club from the Garden City in Asia, scoring three goals.
However, the transfer figures of these players have remained undisclosed.
