NorthEast United FC sign Mumbai City FC player Milan Singh

The Manipuri player will be making a comeback as earlier he had played for the Highlanders in 2014, on loan from Shillong Lajong


Indian Super League (ISL) franchise NorthEast United FC have signed defensive midfielder Milan Singh from Mumbai City FC. The club made the announcement through a video that was posted on their official account on August 12, Monday.

Previously, Milan was signed for Mumbai City from Kerala Blasters last year and had played 15 matches for the Islanders. While Singh didn't score a goal, his efficiency as a defensive blocker earned the trust of coach Jorge Costa and he had become a regular player in the team.

This will be a comeback to his home team as the Manipuri player had played for the Highlanders in 2014, on loan from Shillong Lajong.

Milan started his youth career at the Tata Football Academy before joining East Bengal for a single season. He began his professional career with Pailan Arrows and scored in his first match for the club, against Delhi United in the Durand Cup.

The 27-year-old signed for Shillong Lajong in 2013 and played the I-League tournament before joining NorthEast United on loan next year.

Singh has represented India in six matches for the U-23 squad. His only match for the senior national team came in a friendly against Cambodia in 2017.
