Chennaiyin FC sign Bosnia and Herzegovina defender Enes Sipovic! The 6'6" defender has signed for Chennaiyin on a free transfer after stint at Qatar top-flight side Umm Salal SC.
Kerala Blasters are aiming to sign Gary Hooper, who is to pass a medical test, in order for the signing to be completed, India's transfer specialist Marcus Mergulhao said. They are also going for a European defensive midfielder with whom talks have been concluded and the Blasters hope to complete the signing. The fifth foreigner they are going for is an African defender and the club believes they have convinced him.
They are also in talks with an Asian striker, who scored in the Premier League, but the deal is complicated with him being counted as an AFC player being an issue. They might also go for either an Asian defender or a foreign striker.
You all heard about Gary Hooper too. It’s true, but the signing formalities will be completed once the medical is cleared. Rumours that Hooper has failed the medical is not true. Someone close to the player told me last night the claims/reports are “fabricated.”— Marcus Mergulhao (@MarcusMergulhao) September 21, 2020
