The summer exodus that is expected at Pune FC this summer following Derrick Pereira’s exit, is now underway, as Subash Singh became the first player to announce his exit from the club.
Goal can exclusively reveal that the forward has signed up with Shillong Lajong for the next season, representing a major coup for the North-East based club, as they look to hit-back next campaign having just about stayed clear of trouble this term.
Subash Singh meanwhile was said to be disenchanted with the lack of chances offered to him in the second half of this season, after he impressed in the first part of the campaign.
He still managed 4 goals in 14 appearances for Pune FC in the I-League, and will add some variety to the Lajong attack next season.
Confirming the move, Subash Singh told Goal, “Yes I have signed up with Shillong Lajong for the next season, on a one year contract.”
“I had offers from other clubs too, Mumbai Tigers were also interested, but eventually I decided to sign for Lajong,” he further added.
The move brings to an end the striker’s association with the Red Lizards, which lasted for a little less than three seasons.
This marks the start of a period of transition for Pune FC under new coach Mike Snoei, who are set to lose out on James Moga as well as Jeje Lalpekhlua over the summer. Boima Karpeh is yet to agree to a deal with the club and that would mean Pune FC might have to replace almost their entire strike-force during the next transfer window.
