Odisha FC rope in Nikhil Prabhu on loan from Hyderabad FC
Odisha FC have signed defender Nikhil Prabhu on loan from Hyderabad FC, the club announced through a release on Thursday.
Kiko Ramirez's men who have been leaking goals in the Hero ISL this season will look to bolster their defence with their new recruit.
"Odisha FC have reached an agreement with Hyderabad FC over the loan, with an option for a permanent transfer, deal of 21-year-old defender Nikhil Prabhu. He will be representing the Bhubaneswar-based side till the end of the ongoing Hero Indian Super League (Hero ISL) 2021-22," the club said in a statement.
"Nikhil Prabhu played in various local clubs in Mumbai before joining FC Pune City academy in 2019. He represented the Hyderabad FC reserve team before getting a call from the first team for Hero ISL 2021-22," it added.
Odisha FC's next match in the Hero ISL is against league leaders Mumbai City FC but it is uncertain whether Prabhu will be able to feature in that match.
