Can a signing of an under 18 player make much difference for the last team of the league?
Indian Super League outfit Delhi Dynamos F.C have completed the signing of 17-year old midfielder Shubham Sarangi. The youngster has joined the team and will be eligible to take part in the Hero ISL this season.
Sarangi was part of the Indian probables squad for the FIFA U-17 World Cup held last year, following his impressive showing in the preparatory camps that the National Team had in the build-up to the tournament. The talented youngster rose to fame following his impressive displays in the BRICS Cup, 2016 AFC Qualifiers, Granatkin Cup and the Four Nations tournament in Mexico and is now raring to go with the Lions in the ISL this season.
“I am happy to have completed my move to Delhi Dynamos. Being from the capital it is great to be a part of the club that has become symbolic to football in Delhi in recent years and I can’t wait to put that jersey on and give my 100% for the club and take it to new heights,” a delighted Sarangi said upon completing his transfer.
“We at Delhi Dynamos are ecstatic to have young Shubham join us. He fits in instantly – a player from Delhi playing for Delhi Dynamos and a young player with loads of potential. We are excited to have him and I am confident that Shubham can win over the crowd with his performances,” Delhi Dynamos Director Rohan Sharma said.
This is Delhi’s second signing of the January transfer window with Xabi Irureta being the first player. Xabi is a Spanish goalkeeper who has played for numerous La Liga sides. He was brought to replace the injured Albino Gomes who suffered a knee injury by landing inappropriately after a catch.
