Midfielder Siam Hanghal has ended his one-year association with ISL's south Indian club Kerala Blasters FC as he pens a new deal with Delhi Dynamos for the upcoming season of the Indian Super League. Hanghal had previously played for the likes of Pailan Arrows and Bengaluru FC as well.
25-year old Siam Hanghal, a product of the Tata Academy in Jamshedpur, made his debut on the big stage in the 2012-13 season for the Pailan Arrows but did not make a single appearance that entire season. He was loaned out the next season to DSK Shivajians and then signed for newly established Bengaluru FC where he spent three seasons and won the I-league twice and also the Federation Cup.
After he signed for Kerala Blasters FC last season he made eight appearances for the South Indian club as the yellow warriors finished sixth in the league. However, the Manipur-born midfielder has now opted to leave KBF as he penned a deal with Delhi Dynamos for the upcoming season.
“It is a big step forward for me. Dynamos are a side that has played some attractive attacking football over the years and it fits into my style of play perfectly,” Hanghal told Scroll.in.
Hanghal spent the 2015 season on loan at Northeast United FC and was sold to Chennaiyin FC for the 2016 season. The versatile midfielder also represented the India U-23 team at the 2014 Asian Games. Hanghal revealed that he was looking forward to the challenge ahead of him in Delhi.
“The club has some extremely talented young players in the side and I am not taking my position for granted. I want to earn a spot in the playing XI and looking forward to putting in consistent displays
