FC Goa have completed the signing of goalkeeper Arshdeep Singh for a two-year contract.
Singh will remain a part of the club till the summer of 2024.
“This is a dream come true for me. I’ve always wanted to play for FC Goa, so when I was presented with the opportunity this summer, I didn’t have to think twice before agreeing terms,” Singh said to fcgoa.in after signing on the dotted line.
“Their footballing style is something that I have admired for a long time. However, I have been on the wrong side of some really marvelous attacking performances by Goa,” he added.
“Even though I am a keeper, I love playing with my feet, am comfortable with it and I feel that would be something that I will bring to the club. I can’t wait to develop my game further and take the next step forward,” he said.
“The club has produced several names in the recent past who have gone on to shine for the Indian national team, and my aim is to join them. All that starts with starting games, winning matches and trophies for FC Goa,” the 24-year-old further added.
Ravi Puskur, FC Goa’s director of football also expressed his thoughts on Arshdeep Singh’s signing.
“We’re pleased to bring Arshdeep on board. He’s a keeper who is well accustomed to the league now and beyond his obvious shot stopping ability, has fantastic distribution as well, which is a must for us in our style of football. I’m sure he’ll adapt to our style and system in no time and will be an integral part of the First Team for years to come,” he said.
