NorthEast United FC have confirmed that centre-back Cedric Hengbart will be part of their squad for the Indian Super League (ISL) season 2.
The French defender was a pivotal presence for Kerala Blasters FC who made it to the final against Atletico de Kolkata last season.
The 34-year-old, who can also be deployed as a full back, kept himself in the knick of the game by playing for a Ligue 2 side AC Ajaccio after the end of the last ISL season.
Sorry for all fans. I will not be blasters next year. Thanks for all. It was a fabulous season. Never forgot you. Blasters in my heart.— Cedric Hengbart (@CHengbart) July 1, 2015
