Jeakson Singh recorded his name in Indian sports history when he became the first goal-scorer for India in FIFA World Cup competition of any age group. His strike against Colombia in the FIFA U-17 World Cup is well cherished by the Indian football fans.
The Manipuri central midfielder was part of the Minerva Punjab side but was loaned to Indian Arrows before the start of the last season where he played eight games in last season’s I-League. We can confirm that Jeakson Singh jas struck a deal with ISL Ffranchise Kerala Blasters. But he will not be joining Blasters this season and will be loaned to Indian Arrows for development.
Few months ago Kerala Blasters made the headlines when they roped in India’s prodigial goalie Dheeraj Singh Moirangthem after him returning from training stints in UK. Now with the signing of Jeakson Singh, it can be inferred that the management has started to focus on youth as was echoed by their Head Coach David James on Thursday.
