Goal understands that the custodian, who was an integral part of ONGC's renaissance under Santosh Kashyap last season, has agreed to put pen-to-paper on a one year deal.
While his last season's heroics, which saw him being featured in Goal's top three goalkeeper's list at the end of the campaign, meant that he was chased by several clubs with more lucrative offers, the chance to work with Kashyap again, seems to have swung the balance in favour of the Shillong based club.
The player hopes to sign an agreement in the next week, and the team's fans will be hoping that he is the first of many others, to follow Eugeneson Lyngdoh, who is a part-owner of the side, to the club.
