Chennaiyin FC retain right-back Reagan Singh till 2023
Chennaiyin FC right-back Reagan Singh has signed a new contract that will keep him with the two-time Hero Indian Super League (Hero ISL) champions till 2023.
A tough and resilient presence on the right wing, CFC fans will be overjoyed following Reagan’s retention. The 30-year-old had joined CFC from NorthEast United FC ahead of the 2020-21 season in Goa.
“First of all I would like to thank the Chennaiyin family for believing in me. I feel proud to be part of one of the most successful teams in the country. I believe I contributed well and improved as a player in my first season. My ambition now is to help the club lift their third Hero ISL trophy, and the first of my career. I will work hard and keep improving, and I would also like to thank all our supporters for the unconditional support,” said an excited Reagan after putting pen to paper on a new deal.
“Reagan represents the strength and toughness in our squad. Having joined us with a wealth of Hero ISL experience already, he improved our defensive ranks last season, while also proving to be a threat in the offensive areas. A solid team player, we are absolutely delighted to extend Reagan’s stay with CFC. This is reward for his consistent positive performances, and long may they continue. Also, being a senior player, Reagan is yet another leader of our troops,” said CFC co-owner Vita Dani, as Reagan joins youngster Rahim Ali and Tamil Nadu fan-favourite Edwin Vanspaul, who also extended their stay with Chennaiyin FC recently.
Hailing from Manipur, Reagan began his professional career at Royal Wahingdoh in the Hero I-League in 2012. After three years at the Shillong club, he signed for NorthEast United FC, where he spent five years, garnering solid Hero ISL experience. Known for his composure in defence and bombing runs while going forward, Reagan proved to be a reliable outlet for CFC in the 2020-21 campaign. He helped Chennaiyin FC keep six clean sheets in his 18 games last season, also notching one assist while coming close on multiple occasions to scoring.
Reagan will be hoping to pick up from where he left off and improving on his impressive displays from a debut season for the Marina Arena faithful.
