Indian Super League outfit Jamshedpur FC have announced the signing of South African winger Sameehg Doutie for the upcoming season.
The TATA Steel owned outfit are preparing for their first ever season in the IMG-Reliance owned league and have signaled their intentions by recruiting a proven performer as Doutie.
The 28-year-old plied his trade for ATK in the previous two editions of the league and played a significant part as the team won the coveted title last season under the guidance of Jose Molina.
Doutie, who is blessed with pace aplenty, has scored five goals in his ISL career so far apart from numerous assists.
Jamshedpur FC coach Steve Coppell is no stranger to Doutie having seen his prowess whiles in charge of Kerala Blasters last season. So much so that the Englishman had Ishfaq Ahmed, who is the current Assistant Manager of Jamshedpur FC, play out of position at left-back to check Doutie's threat.
The Men of Steel have already signed a former ATK player in Spanish defender Tiri and Doutie becomes their second overseas signing.
The team picked up stars like Anas Edathodika and Mehtab Hossain in the Indian Player Draft as they build a competitive squad for their inaugural season.
