Dheeraj Singh on his way to Scotland, where will he play?


Internet Desk: Indian U17 team’s star goal-keeper Dheeraj Singh Moirangthem today left the nation to give a trial at Scottish Premiership club Motherwell FC.

His training with the Scottish club is all set to start from tomorrow.

Dheeraj did some stunning saves for the nation during the FIFA U17 World Cup at home last year, left Indian Arrows which is currently playing in the I-League, after his contract ended on December 31,2017.

And while Arrows’ Portuguese coach Luis Norton de Matos was disappointed by his decision, a stint with James at Indian Super League (ISL) franchise Kerala Blasters has been encouraging.

According to Dheeraj’s agent Anuj Kichlu, the 17-year-old goalkeeper from Manipur will train with Motherwell FC’s first team.

If manages to impress the coaches at Motherwell FC, Dheeraj will still have to wait till July, when he turns 18, to obtain an international transfer.

Motherwell’s interest in the Indian goalkeeper grew after his impressive showing at the U-17 World Cup.

Dheeraj’s trial in Scotland is expected to be for three weeks.
