Jamshedpur FC complete the signing of Farukh Choudhary

Jamshedpur FC completed the signing of Farukh Choudhary in the ongoing January Transfer  Window. The right-winger who played for three years at Jamshedpur, makes a return to the club and has signed for two-and-a-half years until the summer of 2023. 

The 24-year-old forward comes at the back of a successful season having won the Player of the Match award four times with a goal and four assists to his name and has been a regular feature  in the Indian National Team recently. 

Jamshedpur FC Head Coach Owen Coyle was glad to have Farukh on board. He said, “Farukh is  a fantastic player with scope to develop even further. He is already an Indian National team  player and has pace and ability to both create and score goals and is an outstanding addition to  our squad, he will help us immediately to challenge for the coveted play off positions and long  term to build a team that will be challenging for honours on a yearly basis.”

Farukh, who made 47 club appearances for Jamshedpur in his three-year stint, was ecstatic on his  return. The winger said, "Jamshedpur is like home to me and I am happy to be back here. I spent  3 amazing years with the club. The coach's trust in me was one of the biggest factors to join back  the squad, and I hope to give my best to help the team qualify for the play-offs."

The signing of Farukh will see Jamshedpur winger Jackichand Singh move the other way to  Mumbai City FC. Farukh has joined the Jamshedpur FC bio-bubble and will be wearing jersey  no. 77 this season.
