Mumbai City FC took to their social media handles on Monday to announce that the club has reached an agreement with Slovakian attacker Jakub Vojtuš until the end of the season. The signing, however, is subject to him succeeding in his medical tests.

The 30-year-old emerged from the youth system of Inter Milan and has later plied his trade across several clubs in Poland and Romania. Vojtuš last played for the Romanian side ACSM Politehnica Iasi, where he scored three goals in 22 matches. The forward has also represented Slovakia in different age groups.

The Indian Super League (ISL) side received a boost in their last game against NorthEast United FC when forward Jorge Pereyra Diaz came off the bench to mark his return from injury. And now, with the acquisition of Vojtuš, Mumbai City FC will look to make up for the loss of their Spanish forward Iker Guarrotxena, who has been ruled out for the season due to a knee injury.

With three Matchweeks left to play in the tenth season of the ISL, Mumbai City FC currently stands at the top of the league table with 39 points from 19 matches, having won 11 of them and drawn six.

The Islanders have three crucial matches – against Hyderabad FC, Odisha FC, and Mohun Bagan Super Giant – left to play in the league stage, and Vojtuš will be aiming to make a mark in these matches and later in the playoffs, as Mumbai City FC will look to defend the League Shield.
