Indians like Adil Khan and Amarjit Singh have joined the Red and Gold next season …
East Bengal might have left the transfer market too late, and the club was one of the last of the Indian Super League (ISL) teams to be active in the window. But with the closing of the transfer window on 31 August, the Red and Golds have managed to field several local Indian players, some on permanent deals and some on loans.
The delayed entry of the Red and Golds into the transfer market was due to the final agreement between investor Shree Cement and the club officials. The issue was temporarily resolved after the intervention of the Chief Minister of West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee, who mediated between the two parties and helped them find a solution with which the Kolkata Club could participate in the eighth season of the ISL. .
It should be noted, however, that it is not necessary for a club to sign players within the transfer window, as free players can be signed after the deadline. Only players for whom a transfer fee must be paid or borrowed must be signed before the transfer deadline expires.
