Indian Super League (ISL) 2016 champions Atletico de Kolkata's Canadian striker Iain Hume has agreed upon a deal to sign for Extremadura Unión Deportivo until the end of the current season.

The 33-year-old who has appeared in all three seasons of the ISL, finally got a chance to win silverware last year. After spending the first year with Kerala Blasters, 2014 runners-up, he joined the Sourav Ganguly co-owned team in 2015 ending up as losing semi-finalists in the second edition.

Hume, who played for Premier League champions Leicester City between 2005 and 2008 was the club's highest goalscorer in 2016. His seven goals also helped him to finish runner-up to Marcelinho, the golden boot winner.
