The Spanish international Palanca is set to join ATK after being released from FC Goa as sources confirm to Talk Sports 24×7.
ATK the Kolkata based ISL franchise has turned to be one of the most active sides in the transfer market to sign players in the coming FIFA transfer window in January. The Steve Copell managed side has already signed in Indian right back Pritam Kotal and Spanish medio Edu Garcia in the current week and are scheduled to join the team on January. The flying Tigers were lacking a target man in the team from the time when Kalu Uche got ruled out and were desperate to fill the void that now turned in the form of Miguel Palanca.
Sources are confirming that the British gaffer has already confirmed the arrival of this expected Spanish man to fill into the shirts for ATK. The ATK captain Manu Lanzarote has got a special affinity for his ex teammate and has played a very important role in this transfer deal.
This 31 year old Tarragona origin forward has scored 3 goals out of his 13appearances in Hero ISL for the past two seasons. Palanca is quite well known for his dual capabilities as a forward and also as a winger. He is also capable of pushing the ball well in to the back of the net. The man will be loaned out from FC Goa for the ongoing season.
Now it’s time to see whether this signing can boost ATK to overcome all hurdles once again and make it to the playoffs which they are very desperate to be.
