East Bengal finalized contracts with Shankar Roy and three other homegrown footballers.


Despite the fact that East Bengal's ISL game has not been confirmed yet, Shankar Roy, the goalkeeper who won the I-League against Mohun Bagan, dropped the offer of two ISL clubs. Shankar Roy is one of the best goalkeepers in the I-League this year. And seeing this great performance of Shankar Roy, the East Bengal officials pulled him into the team. Shankar Roy signed for East Bengal Club because playing for East Bengal from ISL clubs will give him more match time and opportunity to play matches.

Apart from Shankar Roy, East Bengal officials have signed three more homegrown footballers. Side back Keegan Perera came to East Bengal from Jamshedpur FC. Besides, East Bengal officials have signed Mohammad Irshad, who had a great performance for Gokulam in the last I-League.

The red and yellow officials have also finalized Girik Khosla, who played for Punjab FC. This mountaineer can play in many positions, he has also scored two goals in this league. And that is why many people think that this young footballer is going to play a great role for East Bengal this season.
