Nandha Kumar starred in the I-League last season with Chennai City FC
Indian Super League outfit Delhi Dynamos FC has completed a loan deal for 21-year old midfielder Nandha Kumar from I-League side Chennai City FC.
The Chennai lad made his debut in the I-League last season and was one of the finds of the tournament as he scored twice in six appearances. His impressive pace and his movement with the ball caught the eye of the National Team Head Coach, Stephen Constantine who gave the midfielder his maiden call-up to the India U-23 side. Kumar featured in two friendly games against Singapore U-23.
“I am delighted to have Nandha Kumar join us for the upcoming ISL Season. He is a young dynamic midfielder and he fits in perfectly into the club’s plans for this season,” Delhi Dynamos Director Rohan Sharma said.
“We are happy that he has been given an opportunity by Delhi Dynamos. He started his career in a local league in Chennai and then we gave him a chance and he performed extremely well for us last season, which saw him earn a call up to the India U-23 side as well. Moving to the ISL is the next step for Nandha and I hope he performs well,” Chennai City FC Owner Rohit Ramesh said.
The 21-year old will join the squad for their pre-season tour in Doha, Qatar.
