With three being the maximum number of foreigners permitted for the CFL, Mohammedan Sporting have also signed Ivory Coast defender Lancine Toure from Langsning FC.

"There is no football for our players for around five-to-six months between the CFL and the 2nd division I-League. So all the contracts are till the end of the CFL," a club official reasoned.
