With their foreign recruitments almost done, the two-time champions have roped in Indian talents Sehnaj Singh, a defensive midfielder, and emerging goalkeeper Dheeraj Singh. While Sehnaj would be joining the Kolkata-based side from Mumbai City FC, Dheeraj arrived from Kerala Blasters.

Having the proper development at the Gurdaspur Football Academy and the Chandigarh Football Academy, Sehnaj has been a veteran on the Indian domestic circuit previously playing for clubs like Pailan Arrows and Mumbai FC. He came into limelight when Mohun Bagan came calling in 2014 and he made a name for himself with the Kolkata playing, helping them win the Hero I-League 2014-15 title.

His terrific displays saw ISL side Delhi Dynamos FC's calling and he took a step up to ISL in 2015. He was one of their main men as well playing 10 matches and taking Dynamos to the semi-finals. He has since played for Mumbai City FC making 40 appearances over three seasons.

Dheeraj, on the other hand, has been a prodigy who hogged the limelight at the U-17 FIFA World Cup two years ago. The first-choice goalkeeper didn’t keep a single clean sheet but showed skills and understanding of his role, which saw Indian Arrows picking him up quickly.

He debuted his I-League campaign with Chennai City FC in 2017 before Kerala Blasters came calling last year. Dheeraj even had a trial with Scottish outfit, Motherwell FC, and even trained with Premier League club Bournemouth FC during that time.
